I have a GUISEPPE...

I have a GUISEPPE CAPPE CAPODIMONTE MUSICAL ORGAN GRINDER and was wondering if it was worth anything.

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.

It says T.K.C MADE IN ITALY YK/45 I the bottom And also has a signature.

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

I don't believe so.

The 1st picture, on the back, I didn't realize there was a crack in it till I took it out. It's always stayed in our China cabinet

Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

This is a vintage, 20th century, porcelain figural group and music box of an organ grinder from Italy that was modeled by Giuseppe Cappe for a Capodimonte maker.

The 'crack' on the underside looks to be from the firing process and should not impact value.

On today's auction market, this could sell for as high as $350 - $400.
