Hello! I have an...
Hello! I have an Heirlooms of Tomorrow porcelain figure named Verbia with a number of 2673 and a 65 below that. She does have some damage to her dress (with so much lace it is hard to see) but before I toss her out, I thought I should see if she has any value. My mom says my grandmother got her around 1950 or so. Many thanks! *****: 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?
Customer: She is 10.5 to 11 inches tall

Heirlooms of Tomorrow was founded by William Bradley in 1944 at Manhattan Beach, California. The company produced artistic forms of Dresden-type head busts and figurines from 1944-1955. This figurine in number 2673, Verbia, with some damage to the lace is valued at $120.

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.
