I was told that you may be able to help me. I have been looking online for this piece (image included) and I can not find it. It is from the Leonardo Collection item number 1337. This is all the info I have. I have a huge ballet collection and for insurance purposes I was asked to do an itemized list with each piece with name, description, and price. Can you please help me?
I believe your figurine would be considered a ballerina first but would also fall in the Art Deco class which reaches a wider audience and may bring a higher price. that is the reason you would need to get an appraisal as you are looking for replacement price not a current selling price/value.
I am just wondering if someone could help with a value on my Leonardo Doberman ornament. He's about 20+ years old and weighs 1.5kg. I've looked everywhere on the internet and cannot find anything similar. I seem to remember he is called Rocky.
Any info would be greatly received, thank you.
I used to love selling the Leonardo dogs! They flew off the shelves, especially around mother and father's day!
They still have some value and I have seen them sell in the $20 to $35 range on eBay.
If you list it, I suggest to maximize the value to do a 7 day auction, start it at 18.99 and let the market dictate the exact value.
If you sell him in a local site (like if you have Facebook Marketplace type service, you may fetch a little less, but you will not have the muss and fuss of shipping!
Post back with an update on how your sale goes!! Thanks for sharing him!!
I have a Leonardo 1998 Collection figurine with certificate and box. It is of Laurel and Hardy called, Accident Prone. We cannot find anything about this particular double act. Please advise why this might be. There are others that the search finds ie., the fishing one and the sitting on the bench one.
Thank your for your time.
Can you post a photo? I don't know one by the title Accident Prone. There is the one of them falling of a roof, that sold recently on ebay for a best offer of 19.20 euro (which is about 21.89 US. This was a sold price.
If that isn't the statue, then I am at a loss for which one you have. They didn't make that many versions.
Looking forward to learning more so we can get you a value! Thanks!
Thanks for the photo. I have gone through all of my sources and am coming up totally empty.
There is a Laurel and Hardy museum that is either opening soon or is already opened. Their website says coming soon, but there is a phone number of (706) 556-0401
Perhaps they can give you more info. Generally (not specific to L&H) many of the Leonardo products did not hold their value because they made too many.
I am really hoping you have something rare and valuable and cannot wait to hear what you learn! Please post back with findings! Thanks!
I saw something similar on eBay for $30 for the pair.
These are mass-produced and worth $10 or less.
While I can't find the exact one sold (or even for sale at the moment) online, I have never fetched more than 2-3 dollars when I try to sell these.
These used to fly off the shelves like hotcakes when I worked at various Hallmark stores back in the 80s and 90s, epecially at Valentine's Day and Mothers Day.
Sadly, there are a glut of them, which really drove down the resale price all these years later.
Sorry not to have better news for you! Maybe you can find some one who adores mice who would love to have it on a shelf!!
Blessings and all good wishes!
This figurine is from the same line as your people figure and does not appear to be in really good condition. The Leonardo Collection mass produces very inexpensive items and very few will be even the value of the original cost. Dog figurines are selling on eBay for $4.00 to 30 dollars according to the condition and their popularity. One in this condition may not sell for $5.00 and they do not always sell quickly. this type of item would make a good yard sale item as there may be a Rottweiler owner in your area. $5.00 would be a good price to list.
Here are some current listings on eBay and the last link is what some items actually sold for. Some listings are from overseas as this collection is more popular in the UK than in the US - but at very low prices.
It's on sale at Amazon.uk for 12.80 pounds. www.amazon.co.uk/
My husband is an auctioneer part time. He says it is of little value, made of resin and mass produced.
The dog figurine is in very poor condition. Furthermore, it is made by the same company as your other figurine. This item is more of a keepsake than a saleable item. You might be able to ask $2 to 4 dollars for this figurine.
I found this in my shed, small damage on the desk. I cannot find anything like it online. Does anyone know the value?
I don't know that it has a name....that tidbit escapes me. It is an art deco style. I believe it is bronze, but I could be wrong and it could just be a mixed metal cast.
Last time I researched them (I have a friend who is super into deco) they had not held their value (which is great for buyers but bad for sellers).
If this is yours, the one on the left, then it went unsold with a second figure in the high $30s. Only a sold price would give you the exact value in today's market.
I don't see it relisted at the moment, but I a sure if you keep checking back to eBay you will find one that has sold and that will give you today's current market value.
Neat piece!! Thanks for sharing!
I would upload the picture to Lesser and Pavey. They sell a lot of figurines. www.leonardo.co.uk/
Leonardo put themselves out of the general collectible market when they went to almost mass producing their merchandise. This happened several years ago and now there are many who paid top dollar for their pieces and their value has dropped to very low figures.
This looks like Lladro to me. They are quite collectable. I'm not sure how large this is, but Lladro is expensive.
Sorry, this is not related to Lladro collection but are mass produced items and mostly sold through small catalogue sales. The company makes thousands of different type items.
A figurine like this would generally sell for less than $25 but probably closer to $12-15 dollars.
Here is a link to some current listings on Etsy and eBay and one set of 3 neat figures that sold for $30 and the seller had to pay for shipping (approx. $10 or more) which means that after paying eBay and PayPal fees the shipper may have made $15 -16 dollars and that does not count what they originally paid for the item.
Leonardo Collections makes a variety of figurines. They sell on eBay for under $30.00. From the prices I am seeing online you could sell this for around $20.00 I think. It is not a valuable piece, but it could have sentimental value.
I've emailed the company, but the lady who responded (who had worked there 10 years) said she didn't recognise the figurine. It would be nice to know what it's worth, but really I want to know it's name and, say, if there were any similar. I can't find a serial number.
They are not worth much. The most expensive one I saw on eBay was $22. Follow eBay for awhile and I'm sure your figurine will come up.
my grandmother collected dolls that looked just like this and she said one was named 'Clementine' - that one I remember looked just like this, same yellow flowing dress, same hat - but I'm not sure if that means that this is what the doll's original name was or whether she gave it that name
sorry, LOL, possibly not much help but worth a look perhaps?
I have a boxed Leornado Collection Nursery Time foreign porcelain figurine that I am having trouble finding anywhere. I have looked on Google and emailed Lesser and Pavey to no avail. It is a small girl on a white rocking horse. It was a christening gift that is over 26 years old. I'd really like a little more info on it if there is any one that can help?
Thanks in advance.
