For Doris Only. Hi Doris, I have this porcelain fan shaped wall hanging. It has a beautiful portrait scene in the middle and both sides are painted in iridescent pastel colors. The underside has the number 6598 in red. It is 13.5” across, 7.5” tall, and 1.5” deep. I would like to know how to describe it and it’s value. Thank you once again.

Welcome! Doris here.

I am away from my computer for a short while.

You will be first.

My best to you,

Thank you Doris.

This is a mid 20thC hand painted Austrian porcelain wall hanging. It features classically robed Greek women with a view of Greek trading ships in the background.

Greek ships

"Greek ships had sails, and were pushed along by the wind. Small trading ships usually stayed close to the shore, so the sailors did not get lost. Before a voyage, the sailors prayed to the sea god Poseidon, for a safe journey.

Greek warships had oars as well as sails. The largest warships had three banks of oars and were called triremes. A trireme needed 170 men to row it - one man to each oar. It had a long narrow deck that soldiers could run along and fight from. The oarsmen sat underneath the deck."

The estimated retail value in a high end shop would be $400-500.

If you are selling retail privately, you should ask $300-375.

Again,

Online auctions like eBay generally bring wholesale selling prices.

If you would like to sell close to estimated retail, some ideas are:

The internet has your largest audience of buyers. Place small ads on these sites or set up your own small store on these sites.

Be sure to specify local pick up only for large items. That way the buyer would be responsible for obtaining his own insurance and transport.

These sites carry antique as well as vintage items.
Accept PayPal only.

Etsy.com - small fees-20 cents to list plus 3.5% final price.
Artfire.com

These sites are excellent and more upscale but fees are higher. I only recommend them if you have several items to sell.

Rubylane.com
Tias.com
cyberattic.com
trocadero.com
https://www.justcollecting.com

Or your nearest CraigsList.com where you can list items for free. Accept cash only.

Ultimately, to obtain these retail values we assume the piece or set is in good condition and that the final value depends on sale geographic location.

In general, a private seller to a dealer, via consignment or at auction can expect 30-50% of estimated retail value.

Insurance replacement values are usually about 20% more than retail values.

All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.
