Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures so that I can get visual clues of the date and value. Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures. Add pictures of the item and of any marks, writing or labels.

If the Add Files feature does not work for you, you can also email the pictures to***@******.*** and put 'for rarewares in antiques' in the subject line so that they will forward to me. Use the same email that you used to create your account. This way takes a few hours usually, so thank you in advance for your patience.

Hello,

What is the height of this figural and can you please send images of the underside and backside. The first expert has opted-out so to send more images you will now need to put "For Nora - Antiques" in the subject line of your email to***@******.***
