Value of Vintage Ceramic Mold?

My MIL and I bought a ceramic shop in January and we were overwhelmed with all the molds we got (over 17k!). One of the very large molds we found is a large blue collar pig. With some research I found out that this large mold is a vintage piggy bank. I think the name of the mold is "Mr. Harley Boy Forever Pig". The mold company is Tesoro, and I have the mold number, #200. It's a giant pain to pour and apparently a pain to find the cost of the mold as well. I found one website that has the mold and sells painted pieces of this mold for $799.99! We have a lady who is very interested in buying the mold itself. I don't want this lady to over pay, but if the mold is worth something I don't want to under charge either. I guess my question here is, is there any way to find a price of a mold that is rare and hard to even find on the internet? I have tried everything to find a price and keep getting nowhere.

Kudos to you for entering this venture! The art of ceramics is being lost in today's society. Therefore it will be hard to find a value for this mold because it has no value except to the one who values it. (I hope this makes sense!) Anyway.. You may just need to place a price on the mold. If the interested party is agreeable than you have made an acceptable valuation.

On myfirstpiggybank.com, a finished piece is going for $899. I assume this mold is valuable too. I think you would have to find a dealer who specializes in these things to give you an estimate.
