Hi all,

Please could you estimate the value of this entire collection. The boxes have been opened but everything is in good condition. Your help will be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to debate the value or merits of the items and no offence will be taken.

Have a great day.

I'm afraid I'm not much good at valuing things, but I just thought I'd comment on this:

I assume you mean these figurines. They are actually bookends and are the Argonath, who represent Isildur and Anárion, who were Aragorn's ancestors. They (the Argonath) mark the northern border of Gondor. (Although, as these are from the films, technically they are Isildur and Elendil (the one with the sword), because Anárion was wiped from the films.)

Life is short; break the rules, forgive quickly; kiss slowly; love truly; laugh uncontrollably; and never regret anything that made you smile. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Grab a chance and you won't be sorry for the might-have-beens. - Arthur Ransome

Just because I have the vocabulary of a well-educated sailor doesn't mean I'm not a lady.
