I have 2 oriental...

I have 2 oriental art pieces that are 3d on wood - they are 3 different samurai with what I think might be ivory faces. Nothing to tell you where they are from. I can't find anything like them and would like to know about how to get them appraised and probably sold

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 Appraiser should know?

The are pretty colorful with gold accents

Did you get them?

This is a Chinese 20th century set of Emperor and Empress portraits done in carved soapstone

and other semi-precious stones. The pair have a value of $300 to $350 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one, it is very important for me
to get good feedback for answering.
