I have a set...

I have a set of Lefton China Pinky and Blue Boy Figurines with a stamp and number 04233 on each. They may just be worthless knick knacks, but I would like to know that for sure before putting them out in a garage sale.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

The stamp says they are hand painted. The trade mark sticker states "Lefton trademark exclusives: Taiwan

Hi, my name is Glenda,

This is your answer, please read before rating.

Policy: Rating for the Appraiser is for the professionalism of the Appraiser, it is not for the value of the item (Appraisers have no control over values, we do not set values. We simply report them.) It is not for any issues due to the site policy or procedures. Appraisers do not work for the site, we are independent working for ourselves, ratings allow us to continue to work on the site answering customers questions.
.
The Lefton China Pinky and Blue Boy Figurines with a stamp and number 04233 have an estimated value on the current market for an average of $125.00-145.00 ( for the set ) if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less,at around $100.00-105.00, if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $145.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $145.00
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
It was a pleasure working for you. If you have more items you need values for. Just send to "Glenda Only" I would be happy to help.
