Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The item appraised is an engraving on paper by Honore Daumier, a French artist and engraver who satirized society and politics. This engraving is from the "Les gens de justice" series. These engravings appear at auction often and unfortunately, are not as valuable as the color lithographs produced during the 1840-1850s. The estimate provided is for a well-advertised auction. retail prices are typically 4-5x higher than auction.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
