Customer Question
I have a William...

I have a William Blake etching of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. It is a little Brown but otherwise in good condition. It was given to my husband in the 1960's by a woman who bought it in England in the 20's or 30's. Is there any way I can find out if it has any value?

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

That's all I know about it.

Chaucers Canterbury Pilgrims,

an original etching and line engraving, likely from 1810 to 1850,

slight discoloration, has a value of $1200 to $1500 retail.

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.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
