Sno Grasso Terracotta sculpture “The First Machine to Make Paper in a Continuous Loop”

Question

DESCRIPTION
Terracotta sculpture signed by Sno.Grassi. Titled “The First Machine to Make Paper in a Continuous Loop”. Shows 4 men with a dog standing by the machine. I received this as a gift approx 1978 when I worked for Dow Chemical in the paper latex division as a secretary. I’ve carried it with me over several moves, therefore, a hand is broken off and another piece has come off but I have that piece (shown in the picture). Curious if it’s still worth anything.

  1. These terracotta figure groups by Sno Grasso have been sold on eBay and smaller auctions.
    Here are four results:

    50, 150 and 20 USD and respectively (the third passed the first time).

    Here is your figure group, but I can’t find the price:

    Another one for sale on Ebay:

    And a couple more:

    With ceramics and figurines and the likes it matters a lot that they are intact and without repairs, so I doubt that yours will have much value – maybe 10-20 $ in a private sale.
