Hi and welcome. You must be new here. This forum does not deal with value - if you really want to know, get onto e-bay past auctions. It will give you a fair oversight of results in the past (and of course, no guarantee for the future).

It would help you to know these crystal figurines were designed by Olle Alberius in the 1980s.

Hi Aldaniti,  just a little further help on top of Ivo's wise words.

This sculpture is very often incorrectly listed as the Orrefors Glass Blower. So if you are looking for potential values of sold pieces,  it is worth putting Orrefors Glass blowers in the search engine as well.. 

There are two foundry workers listed at the moment, one at 30.00

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ORREFORS-GLASS-FOUNDRY-WORKER-WITH-LADLE-DIS-CONTINUED-FIGURINE-/200796582421

and the other incorrectly listed as the glass blower at $88.

 http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=390436712514

I have written to the seller explaining that it is not the glass blower,  but he has not changed his listing.

I have the whole set except the Carpenter, so if you have one of these for sale or know someone who has,  please feel free to message me.
