Customer Question
I have a bronze...

I have a bronze statue by Justin Fairbanks, son of avard, a boy riding on dolphin, the only one in bronze featured in Eugene Fairbanks and avard book sculptures of the fantasy garden. It has a beautiful patina, done in 1960.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It is in excellent condition

I am working on a picture but I have confirmed with the Avard Fairbanks grandson that it is a bronze by Justin Fairbanks son of Avard Fairbanks. Justin's son Daniel has the original mold and one plaster version. He knows of two other like it, one his stepmother has and the other a family in Spain has it and I have the other, so a total of 3 bronze, boy on dolphin statues by Justin exist. The grandson wants to purchase this from me but He wants me to get an appraisal from someone else. Obviously he wasn't as famous as his father Avard, but helped his father in many of his sculptures. I don't have the book by Avard that the picture is in but I bet you could find it. So tell me what you can find out on value.
