An original oil painting by Arthur Wardle

currently holds a market value of 8,000-12,000$. This value is determined by performing a market research based upon similar items sold in latest auctions and private sales. You would need to purchase a COA (certificate of authenticity) in the nearest local art gallery to provide extra guarantee for a potential buyer.

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.

I would beinterested in appraising other antiques or collectibles items. If you have another question, DO NOT ask it here, instead use this link:
