This large oil on board painting of water lilies by British artist Edwin Straker (1921 - 2011) was auctioned for 70 GBP (hammer price - excluding buyer's premium) in 2019 by Warren & Wignall in Leyland, Lancashire.
Needless to say a new valuation for this painting has to consider this recent auction result, therefore the approximate estimated value is 120 to 150 USD at the moment. But as owner it's also your prerogative to ask for a higher price, let's say 200 to 250 USD.

I hope this has helped you get a better sense of your item.
Thank you very much for your consultation request.
