The large one is a giclee reproduction of the famed Folk Art painting titled, Two Children from Torrey Family. The original piece was painted circa 1835 by an unknown artist. Reproduction displays two young children, identified as sisters as Sarah Frances Torrey born Jan 9, 1829, and Frances Isabella Torrey, born April 7, 1831, dressed in formal clothing, standing behind a display of flowers. The parents were Ebenezer and Frances Torrey, married 1825, she died in 1831.

The other two are also reproduction lithographic prints of paintings that were donein the 1830's and printed later. YOur set of three prints were done in last 30 to 40 years and have a value of $60 for the large Torrey print, $30 for the mediu size print and $25 for the smallest one.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.
