I have a piece...

I have a piece of fine art that I would like to get opinion if its valuable or not

Expert's Assistant: Don't you just love the idea of finding something valuable in your attic? I do, but I think all I have up there is junk my brothers abandoned before they left home. Always a good idea to check things with the Antiques Appraiser, though. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Its a rafael madonna del granducca-reg number 6737 not signed approx 13x33 in a frame

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I know its at least 69 years old since I remember it hanging on the wall all my life and maybe sooner-(pre 1955?)

I believe its a print

When you look at the back of this, do those little pieces that are sticking out feel like a cloth or paper?

paper-they were from the original paper cover that was brittle that I removed to get the back of the picture

Thank you, ***** ***** appear to be a Print applied to board, which they applied prints to textured boards to create an oil painting look.

.

This Print applied to Board, unsigned by the artist but, it is after the original oil painting by Raphael, who was Italian and live fro 1483-1520 this oil on board was done in 1930's-1940's

.

The Madonna Del Granduca has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $250.00-300.00 if sold at an auction (a local auction ) it would sell for a little less if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $300.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $300.00
.
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.
.
