Alfredo Barbini Clown
« on: October 01, 2007, 06:24:44 PM »
I own this clown, it was made by an artist named "Alfredo Barbini." I would like to know if there is a way to determine more about this clown's head, and if you would know where I might start? I would also like to determine a value for this piece.

Hello John,

Thank you for posting this link. I had found it several days ago and had attempted to contact the curator, but I have had no response. I was curious, and you might know; Does removing the stickers front and bottom of a piece like this ruin the value of the piece (conversely, do these stickers increase the value)?  I have been collecting information about the maker and the fun of that has delighted me.

I have not decided if this piece will be sold, but I might once I have had my fun collecting the information and such.

Thank you.

Glass with genuine stickers is always better than without, shame they never put them on discretely
