Hi There~
Thank you for the images and for your patience.
On today’s market an original painting by German artist Carl Spitzweg (1808 - 1885) would carry an auction estimate of $30,000 - $40,000. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $60,000.

Ok but I have already had a higher valuation
Expert:  Nora replied 2 years ago.
The estimate I provided is based on the average of 748 auction sale records listed on a member site,
May I ask who you received a higher valuation from and what parameters they used to arrive to such?
