I have a pair of ceramic glazed pottery elephants, aprox 7"x7",

Customer Question

I have a pair of ceramic glazed pottery elephants, aprox 7"x7", each on a indidually hand carved wooden (teak?) base, caved out to match each foot of the elephant... they were purchased about 50 years ago from the Ryerson Estate (one of the founders of US Steel). I have never had them appraised, but think they might be very valuable. What should be my next move to find out? Michael Faber ***@******.***
