Your work signed "Ferrante" was actually produced by a collective, or essentially a group of people in a studio 'mass producing' original works of art for decorator purposes in the 1970's. These were then sold through decorator and furniture shops and department stores. Because of the size, these can carry auction estimates as high as $400 - $800, however on today's market, they realistically sell for highs of $200 - $300.
