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.

Likely value and dealers in Manchester area who would be worth approaching


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.

2 of the John Steeple's are 45 X 24 cm. The third John Steeple is 51 X 34 cm.
The unsigned painting of Snowdonia is 67 X 35 cm. Would it help if I sent photographs?

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.

I would be happy to help you with any additional items you may have. Do not add new item to this answered question.
