What does this mean?

Hi Nancy,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
Tonala Mexican pottery is quite collectible, though the current market is not what it used to be, with small pieces - such as yours - bringing very modest prices at auction these days and even large pieces rarely selling for more than $150-200.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

A Tonala painted earthenware pottery cat
Made in Mexico, 20th Century
with blue and green hand-painted decoration, the underside marked 'CAT / TONALA MEX / 337'
3 1/2" high by 5" long by 3" wide
*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 for using Mearto.

I would like to sell this item. It came to me through an auction and the gift giver has a charity to which I would like to donate the proceeds. How do you recommend I sell it?

I cannot find the page where I can change my selling preference. I'm clicking on the box that says FOR SALE but nothing happens. I went to where I listed the item but found no way to change this status. Can you help?

Delia Nov 03, 00:27 UTC

I’ll ask our IT dept to change the For Sale status

Delia Nov 03, 11:33 UTC

Good morning, Nancy,
Our IT dept has changed the status on this and it is now marked as "For Sale."
