Hi, My name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you. For selling such a high end bronze you should contact a reputable auction house. The top 4 high end art auction houses I deal with and can trust to bring maximum money for your item would be Bonhams, Sotheby's, Christie's, Heritage. Each of these companies have multiple offices and you can contact each of them from the closest office near you by using www. there name .com.. Each of these companies have a free evaluation of your item. I hope this helps you. Thanks Mike

Hi, I responded to your other question that you should contact Christie's because they sold the same bronze that you have at a previous auction. Thanks Mike

For how much ?
Appraiser: ncsunburst, High School or GED replied 3 years ago
Hi, You have to be a subsciber to Christie's so I can not see what it actually sold for but the estimate was $20,000 - $30,000. I have 2 questions asking the same thing so I might have gotten you confused with the other customer which has one with the girl in the laid back position with an umbrella. Thanks Mike
