i SEND MORE INFORMATION ,HAVE NOT AS OF NOT RECEIVED APPRAISAL OF HOFFMAN ELEPHANT. 1-12-2019

Dear Maria,

Thank you for the additional information and your patience. The presented object is a small sized patinated bronze with the measurements of 2 3/4 x 3 inches. It depicts a standing elephant and is monogrammed "M.H.". This monogram can be compared to other monogrammed bronzes of Malvina Cornell HOFFMAN (1887-1966) and can so be identified as the maker of this bronze.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 500 to 1000 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With best regards,
Georg

CA WE DO THE RODIN SWIRLING FISH? THERE IS NO SIGNATURE, UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE IT WAS A SPONTANEOUS GIFT AS SHE WAS WORKING IN HIS STUDIO. 1910.

CA WE DO THE RODIN SWIRLING FISH? THERE IS NO SIGNATURE, UNFORTUNATELY BECAUSE IT WAS A SPONTANEOUS GIFT AS SHE WAS WORKING IN HIS STUDIO. 1910. E. McCartan is signed and may be a better search. What do you suggest?
