I have several clay figures that I inherited. I was told they were brought from Nicaragua ca.1960s and are pre-columbian. Please tell me everything you can about this particular piece, e.g. history, date, value, origin, etc. Thanks! I will send pictures.

I have not been able to find your figures to value them, I will opt out to see if any other expert might know these.

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser and I'd be happy to help.

It appears this may be a 20th century reproduction. However, the photos are pretty blurry and from odd angles. Can you get me a clear, well-lit photo directly from the front?

Please note that I do not work by phone call, and if you get a phone call request please ignore it--it's auto-sent by the system, not by me.
