Collectibles-General (Antiques)/Immanuel Apache
I have a pair of Immanuel Apache 3 1/2" candlesticks. They are pottery, painted white with black dots. They have three curved legs and are signed on the bottom. One says Immanuel Apache, 1948, USA. The other says Immanuel, Arizona, 85643, USA, Apache, 1948.
Please tell me the history of each piece. Since the bottom says different things, I assume they were not an original pair.
I understand that there are pieces of his work in museums. Since this was the first year Immanuel Trujillo produced his pottery, does this make the piece valuable? What is the market value and what should they be issued for.
I think your best bet might be to get an opinion from an auctioneer named R.G. Munn. http://www.rgmunnauctions.com/auction.aspx?as=28429
. They deal with western art, especially pottery. My expertise in art pottery
is really limited to about 1890 to 1920. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
