PLATES OF THE BOTTOM ABOUT 3 INCHES LONG,BLUE BOY'S SAYS "BLUEBOY AFTER GAINSBOROUGH" AND PINKY'S SAYS "PINKY AFTER LAWRENCE" THESE PICTURE ARE QUITE LARGE AND I HAVE NO WHERE TO DISPLAY THEM.ANY IDEA OF THE VALUE? OR OFFERS FOR THAT MATTER THANKS,LINDA SMITH

Considering that the originals are hale and hearty in Pasadena's Huntington Library, what kind of reproductions do you have? Copies by a painter could be worth something, but run of the mill department store copies would probably fetch something for the frames.

i was wondering if you found a value on the set? i have a large set also with the name plates and authenticity certificates on the backs. my mother has a smaller set that was purchased by my grandparents in 1951, they are under glass. would appreciate some feedback, i think they are library editions...thanx

Their value depends on who made the figurines.

yeah yeah....thanks....people don't seem to realize that the image is worth nothing....it's who and how rendered the image.

"Hey! I have a picture of Santa Clause in a wood frame under glass...what's it worth?"
Or better yet..."hey, I have a picture of the Mona Lisa framed in a wooden frame under glass....."
