Dear Robert,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil paint on canvas with the measurements of 18" X 27 1/2". The painting depicts a park with a lake and is signed by the artist Jaya APPASAMY (1918-1984).
Artworks of this artist were not recently offered and sold on the international and national auction market. This defines a difficult situation for the apprisal because there are no comparables to define an actual market situation.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 4.000 to 8.000 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

An artwork of such high potential value requires further authentication research. This estimate is provided on the condition of authenticity.

With kind regards,

This is a conditional appraisal, which means that we have not verified the authenticity of this item. Click here to learn more about the authentication resources that Mearto offers.

Dear Robert,

Thank you for your email. Sadly regarding technical problems, the images and messages were not displayed. I apologize for the delay of the appraisal.

Thank you for your inquiry about consigning through Mearto. When you submitted your item to us for appraisal, did you select "yes" or "maybe" when you were asked if it was for sale? If so, your item automatically entered a database, which is accessed by a number of regional and international auction houses actively seeking new items for consignment. If there is any interest, they will contact you directly through our platform. You will receive an email notification if one of them makes an inquiry. If you selected "no" when asked if the item was for sale, you can change this so that your item enters the database. Just visit "my collection," select the item, then click the "edit item" button at the top of the page. On the resulting page, click "yes" or "maybe" to answer the question: "Are you looking to sell this item?" Good luck and if there's anything else I can do to help, please just let me know!

With kind regards,
