Customer Question
I have two etchings...

I have two etchings by R.H. Palenske, unframed, i received from my grandmother. I am 76. How can I find out if they are originals or copies, and their value. My husband just died and I need to liquidate everything to raise funds. Thank you.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable.

How do I do that and what is the cost involved?

Expert's Assistant: You just pay a $5 deposit now and the rest only when you get a reply from the Antiques Appraiser. All of this is 100% satisfaction guaranteed, so you can get a refund if you're not happy for any reason.

Ok. How.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

One is of Startled Mallards, signed. and the other is Whirlaway, signed.

Hello,

My name isCustomerand I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the print,
signature and back of frame where there might be labels or writing.

I understand that you might not be able to send photos,

so I can assess without since I am familiar with this artist.

1) Reinhold H. Palenske (IL, 1884-1954), Original Etching,

Signed Lower Right, Whirlaway, Depicting the mid-century American

thoroughbred race horse, this piece has a value of $30 to $50.

2) Reinhold H. Palenske (IL, 1884-1954), Original Etching,
Signed Lower Left, Startled Mallards, this piece has a value of $50.00.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Varagesale.com, Ioffer.com, OfferUp.com, Ebay and letgo.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top of your screen and hit submit, thanks!
