Hi i have 2 paintings by C J KEATS and i would like to know if they are worth anything
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Is there any info on the back of the painting, or a certificate of authenticity?
Customer: I will need to look
JA: Do you know how old the painting is? What condition is it in?
Customer: My Mum got them about 20 years ago
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: They are in good condition

Thanks! Happy to help! (Please ignore phone call requests)

Thanks! These charming early 20th century watercolors of townscapes by C J Keats today sell for around 100 to 150 pounds each and they are often sold as a pair at the 200 to 300 pound level at auction and a bit more at antique shops.

Back in a moment with the Paul Gage.

The oil painting by Paul Gage (1902 - 1983) is a great streetscape by the well-known French artist and these sell for 400 to 600 today at antique and consignment shops.

Again, thank you! Is there any additional information that I can provide? Rating my professionalism using the 5-star system is the only way that JustAnswer recognizes my work in helping you and closes the question. It does not cost you anything additional. (https://www.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-rate-answer) Also, I don't participate in calls that cost additional money for you: these requests come from JustAnswer and not the expert. If you have any more questions, let me know!

Do you know a good antique shop in Manchester who will buy them ?

I'd reach out to Bonhams' as they have regional auction offices, see: https://www.bonhams.com/ or alternately: https://www.slad.org.uk/
