Thank you for your patience. The sale value is based on present condition. I personally only sell as-is and let the buyer do as they please with the item. In addition, painting, to do it right, is alot of labor and expense.....spare yourself that, honestly :)
I would be happy to help you with any items in the future, however I only assess one item or matched set per question here.
For the phone, on this thread, it would be to discuss the item in question. For another item, I would need to see new photos before the call.
When you post a new question, please add "For Nora" or "Hi Nora" at the beginning of your question so as to ensure that I will be the one who answers your question for you.
The only items I do not assess for value are clocks, coins, watches, sewing machines, swords and firearms.
