Welcome! My name is***** will be pleased to help you. Thoughtful responses take time. I am studying your question and will return shortly.

Ask Your Own Antiques Question

What size is your piece (in inches) not including the frame and mat? Please do not remove from the frame.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment.
If you cannot send photos, I can still work with your descriptions; however, I can give more accurate answers if I have photos.
Can you send photos?

If so, then -

Please send photos of the front and back of your framed pieces.

Please send a photo of the signature.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the signature.

To send photos you may use the "ADD FILES" in the blue box link (next to "SEND" or "SUBMIT") on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert-hl

I do not send pop-up offers.

Please do not try to use the site email method of sending photos without specific instructions from me.

Kind regards,
Doris

Tyrus Yu Wong (1910-2016)

"This Chinese-born artist is a painter, lithographer, and designer who studied at Otis Art Institute. A production illustrator in the film industry, Wong has worked for such studios as Disney and Warner Bros. He was also one of the first fine artists to apply his talent to the designing of Christmas cards.

Tyrus Wong and his father immigrated to the United States from China when he was 9 years old. When he attended Benjamin Franklin Junior High in Pasadena, his teachers noticed Wong's artistic ability and arranged for a summer scholarship at the Otis Art Institute. Wong was hooked and decided to leave junior high for a full time studentship at Otis. Since his family was poor, he worked as a janitor at this school and walked for miles just to attend classes. It paid off as Tyrus Wong had a lucrative career as an artist in Hollywood.

He has done everything from working as a greeting card designer to Warner Brothers film production illustrator (1942-1968), from drawing set designs and storyboard for several movies to being a Disney inspirational sketch artist (1938-1941). It was his lush pastels that served as inspiration for Bambi (1942)."
Source:
Website of the Otis Art Institute

His lithographs sell for an estimated retail value of $350 each.

As for retail value, I have seen art sell for 4 to 10 times auction values depending on the tastes of the art gallery owner as well as location of the gallery.

In general, a private seller to a dealer or via consignment can expect 30-60% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20% more than retail values.

If you wish to sell, these are my suggestions -

The internet has your widest pool of buyers. To sell close to estimated retail try the following -

Try ads on sites such as

https://www.artbrokerage.com/help/selling-art

http://www.rubylane.com/art

http://www.askart.com/Ads_Individual.aspx

https://www.artnet.com/auctions/all-artworks/?utm_campaign=bannerad&utm_source=080514auctionsevergreen&utm_medium=link

http://www.artvalue.com

http://www.artprice.com/marketplace/sell-an-artwork

Some like Etsy.com where you can set up your store for free and the selling fees are small - 20 cents to list an item plus 3.5% of the final price.

Or list with no fees whatsoever:

Sorry didn't find this helpful...

What else would you like to know?

If framed, these would be worth more.

Ask Your Own Antiques Question
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
they are in frames..you asked for just the picture size...

unfortunately, you were unable to send photos.

If well framed and matted, they would have an estimated retail value of $400-500 depending on the quality of the frame.

Kind regards,

Doris

Sorry haven't gotten the value... is what I was searching for...

"His lithographs sell for an estimated retail value of $350 each." i copied and pasted this sentence from my original answer. It is the retail value unframed.

As I just stated, the estimated retail value range matted and framed is $400-500.

What other types of values are you looking for?
