I have a collection of capodimante ornaments that my elderly neighbour wants me to sell for him. Is that something you could help me with?
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Do you know how old the collection is?
Customer: His late wife bought them throughout the 70's
JA: What condition is the collection in?
Customer: There are 10 pieces. 8 are perfect with certificates and 2 have slight damge
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: I think they all have the stamp and signature on the base

There are about a dozen but I can only load up one pic at a time on here


Thank you for contacting Just Answer.

Sadly, while the retail purchase price may be high for these figures they have never enjoyed a good resale figure. In an auction I worked at in London I was told not to take them in to sell. I would therefore value these at 100-150 usd the whole set. I am sorry if this is disappointing and I hope to provide better news in future.

Kind regards

Thank you Mark. Do you have any advice on Nao China?

Neo are better to resell than capio, they fall just below lladro in quality and value
