Hi John,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Mearto's values are based on recent auction sales, which are usually quite a bit lower than prices commanded by works in galleries (which are considered retail values). I've searched the auction databases Ive access to and there has only been one work by Elisabeth Decobert at auction in the past 20 years - it was estimated at $200-400 and realized $125 (https://www.invaluable.com/auction-lot/elisabeth-decobert-french-contemporary-fantasy-fi-189-c-4bc4c15b6b) just this past spring.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

Elisabeth Decobert, (French, Contemporary)
Untitled (Mouse on an Eggplant)
blown glass
unsigned
8 inches high, 15 inches long, 3 inches wide
PROVENANCE: acquired in 2005 from Galerie Alex Menem 12, rue de l'Eperon Paris, France
$500-800*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you again for using Mearto.

Thank you for the response. I really thought the piece would have increased in value over the 15 years or so. It is unsigned unfortunately.

Regrettably, the artist does not yet have a following at auction to have a body of sales to support a higher value. I'll mark this as an unsigned piece.
