Q:  I only have the front view now.  The mask is in my air conditioned storage unit.  If you are interested, I can certainly take the side and rear.  I am interested in your opinion.  Additionally, what do you charge for appraisal?  The mask is hand-carved wood.  Carolyn, 821

A:  Personally, I enjoy masks like this. It can be described as a Mexican decorative probably made in the state of Guerrero. Masks like this are intended for sale to tourists and export. What I like about them is they often surprise me with their strong colors and designs I would have never imagined. Technically they are wall art, not real masks. My minimum charge for appraisals is $50, which would not make much sense in this case. C
