Thanks Hose_dk

Do you have any Idea how much it is worth?


#4

Money value is of no interest to me.
You know how much you paid and how much you would be villig to give - so you have the value. :slight_smile:


#5

Thanks for your answer. In a capitalist world where money is the basis of our society it is not unusual to hear those words but I feel rather cynical. It is for this reason that I put it into the “what’s it worth” category of the forum and not the other sections :laughing:

and somebody might give you a figure.
However you have bought the item - and then you have the value.

Hi there,
You paid X for the piece what that represents is cost. Value and worth are much more subjective. However onto what I suspect is the kind of information your were expecting. I was at an auction last week where a similar ink stand (Sheffield 1915) was sold for £220 which when you add auction house fees etc would put full purchase price at about £250. Some auction houses maintain an archive of previous sales so that may be an option for more research.
Hope this helps,
Regards,
Tony
