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

I recently bought a pinky and blue boy set of figurines and I would like to know what the worth is. My Grandmother used to have there pictures in her home. If some one knows the approximate value of these figurines I would appreciate it if you would reply thank you so much.

Their value depends on who made the figurines.

RE: Pinky and Blue Boy

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....."
