This one is summer flowers by pawlitzchek

Peerart (J. Pearson and Company) of Colne, Lancashire, England

was a company that made the frames to go on the paintings

subcontracted by studio freelance artists from 1940 to 1960 or so. They used artists that were

unknown that would produce in quantity. Both of these floral still lifes are by artists

that are not listed artists. The paintings have a value of about 30GBP each on average.

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.

Can you tell me anything about the pawlitzchek who is a listed artist.

Hans PAWLITSCHEK (1909-1972) painted for this company in his early years as an artist.

He is actually not a listed artist but he did do a large body of work that is on the market now.

The work similar to yours usually has estimates at auction of £50 - £70 but goes unsold or sells for £30.
