Customer Question
We have 2 sets...

We have 2 sets of statues that we are trying to find the value on so we can have them insured and are not having any luck finding any information on them.

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.

We have one set of a boy and girl who are carrying baskets full of crabs that my mother-in-in law bought years ago and we have 2 that are musicians one is playing a guitar and the other a flute

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

The musicians are made of a material like rod iron and are very heavy and the what we call the crab kids are mdd of porcelain
