Customer: I have 3 John Steeple landscape water colours all dated 1876

JA: What condition is the painting in?
Customer: Hi
I have 3 John Steeple landscapes in watercolour. All are signed and dated 1876. I believe the paintings depict Welsh landscapes. I also have an additional watercolour landscape (l believe depicting Snowdonia) but artist and precise date unknown. All paintings are in excellent condition and professionallly framed. I am looking to sell all 4 paintings but not sure of likely value and not sure about best way to kick start the marketing process.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: Size of the paintings.... Two of the Steeple paintings are 45 X 24 cm. The third Steeple is 51 X 34 cm.

Hello

We are not allowed to suggest a particular person or dealer to a customer.

But if you tell me the size of these I can get you the value.

The first 3 are the Steeple paintings. The 4th was the unsigned painting but looking more closely I wonder if there is a signature bottom right (see final photo)
Apologies for the poor quality photography and reflections off the glaas.

Thank you

John Steeple's Water Colors are 45 X 24 cm -350.00-375.00 GBP, the 51 x 34 -450.00-475.00

The unsigned Snowdonia 67x35 500.00-550.00. These are nicely framed and in very good condition.

If you plan on selling. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
Facebook Marketplace is how most people post things for sale locally.
.
Etsy is a great site.
.
There is also craigslist locally which is free. Ebay is a great option. It does reach a lot of people, but items tend to sell a little lower on there If you do decide to try Ebay, I recommend setting reserves.
