    Hello,

    I do not know if this is the right place but I am wondering if I can get input on an item going off shortly from an on-line auction. I am wondering what you all think the value might be on the Brides Box they have. (please don't bid =) )

    I am not sure how to get you to the actual item but will try. It is
    #124 • Paint Decorated German Brides Box

    Hopefully this will take you directly to it

    But if not here is a link for his site

    Thank you for any input

    Value depends on the venue, I see better auction houses getting $300-$550 for very similar ones in the past couple years, much more a decade ago. Smaller regional auction houses only getting around $150-$300.
    Check liveauctioneers.com for recent sales.

    Okay, thank you. I have looked at some but haven't found any with the creepy guy with the child on his back. I was wondering if that would add to the value.

    One of our most knowledgeable members told me to wait until the bidding is just about done and they are calling the last time and make your bid. Have a figure in your mind that you will not exceed and don't go over that. Good luck

    I took a screen shot, it wouldn’t let me save the photo.
    Definitely an unusual one, would think it would add value.

    I'm out. Someone else started bidding on it. Does anyone else ever feel they can never get what they really want? =)

    Thank you for the help.
