Customer Question

Nobody has been able to give me any idea as to what I have. It was on my in-laws wall in 1967. It was made in Italy. Sculpture made to look like a picture, with frame. It is about 20' x 36. weighs about 37 pounds. Has a gay theme, that looks Greek, but could be Roman. I wonder how much it would cost to ship it to US. I certainly think it was sculptured, as I can not see how it could be mass produced.

Are you asking how much this item would cost to be shipped to the US? Or are you asking for an appraisal of the piece itself? You are correct, if the piece was hand sculpted then it not have been mass produced. Is this piece 20 feet by 36 feet or is it 20 inches by 36 inches? It was made in Italy you say? Was there something that brought you to this conclusion? Maybe a tag or a story from a relative or something of that matter? I would more than happy to help you. Little more information would be great. Material its made out of, the material the frames made out of (brass, wood, etc.) things like that would be important to add.
