- Mother-daughter duo Daniela Stange and Annette Herwig from Henstedt-Ulzburg (Schleswig-Holstein) want to sell two antique paintings at the “Bares für Rares” exhibition.
- Annette Herwig inherited these items from her father, and they remained in the closet for 50 years.
- The duo charges 80 euros (75 francs) for both paintings. It turns out that these rare items are in demand and fetch almost 500 times more than expected.
The two candy paintings by Daniela Stang and Annette Herwig with French landscape motifs and other engravings are not only beautiful to look at, but are also truly rare.
German art historian Dr. Bianca Berding took a closer look at the paintings at the “Bares für Rares” exhibition and learned that they were made between 1824 and 1832 at the famous French manufacturer Sèvres.
There are only about 205 pieces of these handicrafts. One of them is on display at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA) in New York City.
Art historian Dr. Berding gives the value at 39,000 euros (about 36,800 francs). Win the jackpot for the daughter and mother team.

The Stange-Herwig supplier duo is astonished by this realization.
In the end, Daniela Stange and Annette Herwig return home with 36,000 euros (about 34,000 francs), an amount they were able to negotiate thanks to junk TV dealers. Standard amount.
