Hi,
 Those panels are stunning and look to be in great condition. It is wonderful that even an image can give so much pleasure.
They are worth a lot of money and maybe a museum would be interested in acquiring them. Send some pics to the Corning Museum of Glass.
 Patrick.

The pictures do the panels no justice. They are absolutely amazing in person!!! The images are etched and sandblasted into the glass giving them a three dimensional feel.

Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Well, the Corning Museum was no great help. They told me that they had never seen large Hunebelle pieces like this before and that museum personnel cannot discuss value. I had also sent pictures to Christie's Auction House using their online appraisal form. They told me that they could not appraise the panels because they had never seen anything like them and have nothing to compare them to. Anybody have any other ideas?
