Unfortunately there are no online indications of how much an oil painting by Barbara Tate would be worth, however I can give you some advice on how to find out.
- Firstly, you need to do as much research as possible about the painting you have in your possession. Make sure you know the background of the artist as well as the era it was painted in. If you require more information about it, you could perhaps contact her website, found at this address www.barbaratate.co.uk/menu-other-stuff/contact-us-mainmenu-3
- Find an art appraiser but make sure they are legitimate so I advise you to seek someone out that lives near your area rather than over the internet because there's a chance they will scam you. Look through the Yellow Pages or call local art galleries.
- When you have found someone, you should request information regarding their credentials and fees as well as their professional background. You should also ask them if they are eligible to issue you a certificate of authentication so when you come to selling it you have the proof. It is important because you don't want to be taken for a ride.
- Once the appraiser has evaluated the piece and identified its worth, you can begin calling dealers and get the ball rolling for a sale.
