I will answer with without photos and give you a sales range.

Joseph C. Motto (1891 - 1965) was an Ohio sculptor. He

did work in ceramic, bronze and stone.

Works in ceramic have a value of $1500 to $1750

and works in bronze and stone are valued at $1800 to $2500 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit the submit button, thanks!
