Just Glenda, this pair of...
Just Glenda, this pair of figurines were a gift to my mother in 1979 or 1980 from ***** ***** sr the former owner of Harold’s Club in Reno NV. My parents ran the Virginian hotel and he lived in a condo on the property and my mom looked in on him regularly. They have no markings and stand from base to head each about 21” tall and 7.5 wide at base. My mom took them to a high end store in Reno back in the 8Os and told me they’d valued them at 1500. Any idea what style or where they came from, etc? My mom didn’t remember much more than that and left me them when she passed in 2011.

Hello

Are these painted Bronze / Metal ?

Ask Your Own Antiques Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I think painted metal but not sure how to tell bronze or metal

They are most likely a metal blend,, where they used different metals to make a stronger metal, I can see why they valued them that high back in the 80's , I bet they are not far off that value now. Be right back

Hi,
This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Antique Cold Painted Sculptures have an estimated value on the current market for an average of $600.00-625.00 each. 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.
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.

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.

I have been collecting and selling museum displays from
I have been collecting and selling museum displays from items I've happened across since 1975, while mostly in the service. My shroud of turin was one of 15 made by the sturp team and I sold it along with Items collected in the Middle East as The last week of Jesus to the Holyland Experience in Orlando, Fl. I keep the others for my house in Dallas. Now i'm downsizing and still have most in specially built crates that I keep in Climate controlled environment. I have a a refurbished "Our Lady of Guadalupe" made by the Team allowed to photograph it during the restoration in 1963 in which the Church allowed the Tilman to be viewed with the protective glass removed. In addition I have a full sized "Copper Scroll" scribed inscribed in the various languages that Is mounted on a felt backed display, the only one that I know of from Amman Jordan where the original is located. The Gutenberg Bible is an exact replica of the UT Austin with special Plexiglas's Bobble top. The Bible is a facsimile of one in France that was a copper box type and circa 1959-60, placed in a NYC warehouse until I was able to acquire it in 2012. The final item is a metal set of window type frames in which I placed the most divervse and uninique set of one page examples that show the different materials the uses. The gray backing can be added or removed as the frames contain the Plexiglas documents from Israel and can be put on easels included, sat on a alter or hung. I have them as photos on my face book page. Do you or anyone you know appraise Museum Items such as these? … read more
