I have 3 silk...

I have 3 silk paintings from 1950 when my father was in Japan. I would like to sell. They are all signed.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

They are 17 1/2 by 14 1/2 in size in bamboo frames. All have color in them. 1 with 3 sale boats, 1 volcano portrait. 1 moonlit village .

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the art,
signatures if any and back of completed framing for any writing or labels.

These three Japanese landscape paintings on silk in bamboo frames from

the 1950's, Tokyo, have values of $40 to $50 each on average.

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.
