Hey all,

Thinking of selling my Milson Worth collection. Just wondering if anyone can recommend current values? I have a Astro Ball, Chinese Flame Clock, Curious Cubes (wood cubes) and Dove Appear? Any ideas? Thanks in advance. -Steve

Condition is everything. You do list some nice pieces though.

You might want to look at Martinka.com, oldmagicprops.com and ronallesimagic.com. Check the closed auctions, if applicable. Be aware that auction prices are sometimes inflated over true value. All it takes are a couple bidders trying to out gun each other. Even straight sale prices can be higher than reasonable value if no one is buying at that price. Sometimes you have to watch the items for awhile to get a feel for what they do sell for.

Hocus-pocus and The Trickery have estate magic sections worth looking at, too.

The Chinese Flame Clock might bring around $250 - $300.

I sold my Chinese Flame Clock and Astro Ball Cabinet a couple of years ago. Both were in very good to excellent condition. I sold both for $600.00 ($400.00 for the clock and $200.00 for the Ball Cabinet).

If you haven't already, you may want to pay Martinka's very low subscription and have access to their years of auction prices. They've sold dozens and dozens of Milson Worth items. Sure, a lot of their items go for more than they'll fetch in other venues, but it's still a good place to gauge your collection's "Worth." (sorry)

This link will put you in Martinka's search area. Put in Milson Worth, and check "Show Closed Items Only"
