Hello. I’m Art & Antiques ExpertCustomerwith extensive experience in all kinds of antiques and art appraisals. I will be happy to assist you with your query, which was forwarded to me today. I regret that you had to wait so long.
I am referring to the above illustrated bronze bust of King Faisal I of Iraq, dated 1921, by Countess Feodora Gleichen (1861-1922).
In my opinion it can be valued at around 2,500 to 3,500 GBP.
If selling is your plan, here are a few helpful suggestions: To save the work of selling on your own, you could go to LoveAntiques.com, Sellingantiques.co.uk, Antiques.co.uk or Vinterior.co – they are all UK-based. There you can find professional antique dealers and consign your item to them if desired. A bronze of this quality could be also interesting for the major auction houses like Sotheby's, Christie's or Bonhams.
I hope that I have provided you with the information you were seeking.
Please feel free to let me know if you need further clarification or help with this matter.
If you intend to sell the bust, I believe that is a very attractive price.
