Customer Question

I have a folk art, carved, wooden farm set from the 1940s or 50s. It is very extensive with over 200 pieces including:
- A fully functional barn, side and top open to allow access (25" wide X 16" high X 16" deep)
- Silo (28" high with 6" diameter)
- Water tower (16" high with 6" diameter
- 3 additional out buildings (chicken coop, wagon, and tool sheds)
- 17 pieces of 3 rail wooden fence which when laid out creates a farm scene 10 feet X 5 feet
- Farmer, family, farm hands, and scarecrow
- Wagon, horses, and driver
- Animals (cows, calves, horses, chickens, pigs, piglets, sheep, and ducks)
- Produce (milk, honey, apples, hay, and corn).
All of these are painted in detail. It is impossible to describe in words.
I've looked on line, and can not find anything like it. Does anyone have an idea as to the value of such a set? Thank you in advance for your help.

My name is***** have been buying, selling and appraising antiques since 1970. There looks like a label on the Barn. Can you make out anything that it says?
