Could you please give me a valuation for two Edmund Blair

This answer was rated:

Could you please give me a valuation for two Edmund Blair Leighton antique prints. Ages approx. 1800s. Framed - looks like mahogany with an affixed brass title of print at base. Signed. Sizes are approx. 31.5 inches height by 25 inches width including frames.
One is "God Speed"
One is "The Accolade"
Both in faded black and white but very good condition. Frames in good condition. Backings are worn with some tears in what looks like old brown paper. These prints look very old. They belonged to a lady who has now passed away and are being sold by her daughter. Your appraisal would be appreciated asap as i am to view these prints on Monday 12th March!! Many thanks

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the art,
signatures if any and back of completed framing for any writing or labels.

EBay item no. 401494354369

Hmm, I am not getting a result for that number in active or sold items.

Try going to that item and copying the url (the web address) up in the address bar and pasting it here.

I just sent into EBay UK and put this item no. in the search bar and the prints came right up!

Ah, I see the problem. I am in the US. I switched to EbayUk and I see one print there.

Let me do some work and I will write back.

There are two prints as per my original appraisal query. “God Speed” and “The Accolade”. Please check out ALL the photos

These are sepia-toned prints of the 1900 and 1901 oil paintings God Speed and The Accolade

by English artist Edmund Leighton Blair (1852-1922), a pre-raphaelite painter.

These were printed in the 1902 to 1910 time period based on the common period of how long after a painting was created that prints were usually available. These can't be from the 1800's as you stated in your original question because the original paintings were not created until 1900 and 1901. The value of the prints is at the most £200 each.

Is that value based on the prints alone or as pictured in frames?

As they are, in the frames.
