Hello Martie,

My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help.

Thank you!

John Constable (1776-1837), painted this image in 1936, shortly before his death. The original is housed in the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Sine this item was sold in the museum gift shop, it is not rare.

If it is in perfect condition, the current retail (replacement or insurance) value of your print is approximately GBP 40. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount or GBP16, depending on location and actual condition.

Many people feel that the older an item is, the more it is worth. This is not the case -value of multiple items such as reproduction prints are not higher if the print is older. Condition is more of a factor than age.

I hope this answer has been helpful to you, Martie.

If you have any further questions or problems concerning this answer, please let me know.

If you would like to work with me on further questions you might have, it would be a pleasure to work with you again. All you have to do is put my name (Judith) at the beginning of your question.
