Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece and the blue finish are in medium to good condition and no severe damage is visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 750 to 1.500 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
