Hi I found what...

Hi I found what I thought was Alinari Soc. Az IDEA on wood, however I don’t see any numbers. I have 2 larger pieces and 3 smaller pieces as well only bigger ones have labeling.

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.

May I send pictures for a review

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

No not really.

It does appear you have Alinari Soc. Az IDEA, Not all of the pieces had numbers.

.

FRATELLI ALINARI Society dates back to the mid 1800s. Founded in 1854 by brothers Giuseppe and Romulado Alinari and carries the name of their brother. One was an artist and the other in administration. They took part in shows, expositions and were praised for their methods in photography. They began publishing, both books and reprinted works of art from the great masters to even unknown artists. Much of their work was based on ancient Rome.

The addition of the IDEA (Istituto di Edizioni Artistiche) to the name first shows up around 1920. Given the style and label, your pieces likely dates from around the 1930s to 1940s.

If you can tell me what size your pieces are I can get the values for you.

Hi

This is your answer, please read entirely.
.
The Alinari Soc. Az IDEA art, 17 x 13" has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $250.00-275.00 the 8 x 6 " -$ 145.00-150.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less,at around $ , if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $ depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $
.
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. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is also Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. You can also sell on Charish, where you consign items. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
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.
.

Are the estimates for each piece or if sold together?

17 x 13 $250.00-275.00

8 x 6 each -$ 145.00-150.00

This is for each piece, if you sold it together. you can add them all up and then decide if you would sell it for a little less selling all three together.
