    mucha print on mirror

    i have just bought a large mirror (not antique but collectable)

    dating from the 1970's,

    the artist is czech and called mucha..

    although this is just a retro print on a mirror,,i know people that collect them so i will find a buyer...

    the mirror is quite large approx 1 meter in length..

    no damage at all and in a lovely chrome coloured frame...

    i sold one not to different about a year ago but was done by an irish artist called fitzpatrick..and got £75 for it...
    john do you have any thoughts on retro collectables and expecially this peice.....?????

    cant wait for your response you probably think i have gone mad..

    A little Ebay buy I see on the water colour.

    I do not recognise the artist though...

    1970's Mirror not antique . I would say around £20 - £40 on somewhere like Ebay, obviously you would have to factor in the quality of the mirror the size of it and the condition of it.

    Don't shoot the messenger... (John) Haha

    But anywayz you say you can't walk past a bargain sometimes, I have the same problem mate, but it is at this point I have to define where I can re sell it, and if it really is a bargain or it is this price for a reason, looks like you have the same problem.

    Don't know if I'm a help or a hindrance--and I expect you have already done this--but I "Googled" M. D. Ansell and reached a site, artnet.com, which had something about Ansell. I didn't look further because I would have had to register, and I didn't want to go through all that. I figured if you were interested enough you could look it up and register if necessary.

    Oh wow, Briana, I don't blame you--I wouldn't register either if it costs to do so (and monthly too, not just one time.) ! I didn't realize there was a charge, I suppose I didn't check far enough into it.

    Here's to succes for you in the next year. By the way, I know Briana isn't you--(you're Carl, right?) anyway, just wanted to let you know my granddaughter's name is Riana--pronounced the same but without the B.

    A bargain is not always a bargain until you have spent the profit.

    but sometimes it comes with a forfeit.
