Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The process of valuing items for auction typically relies on comparable items and what those items have sold for at auction. It's a fairly straightforward process when one is valuing fine and decorative artwork where there are large groups to provide precedent upon which to base a value; it's less straightforward when appraising things that are unique, rare and/or one-of-a-kind.
Do you regularly sell works that you've made? Are you represented by a gallery? Do the parts move (together) or are they individually static?
I'll try to look for some comparables but having answers to the above will help in the valuation process.
Many thanks in advance,
