A Ernest Stuart (fl.1889-1915) Signed Early 20th Century original watercolor painting currently holds a market value of 300-400$. This value is determined by performing a market research based upon similar items sold in latest auctions and private sales.

If you are selling, I would recommend starting on the internet so you can reach more potential buyers. Good market places are Etsy, Amazon Market Place and eBay.

For local selling, I would recommend Craigslist which is free, fast and easy to use.
