OKLAHOMA CITY – A few pieces that were passed down through the generations are worth more sentimentally than on the open market.

A print of a cow by artist FC Murphy was mass-produced, but it is still collectible. It would likely be sold for $25 to $35 on the open market.

Another chromolitograph that has been in the same family for five generations brought a little bit of light and color to 19th century homes.

The painting  would likely be worth $35 to $55.

A flea market find by a doll collector earned her a few bucks. A clown figurine would be worth $55 to $75 in decorative value.

Check if you have any treasures around your house that could be worth money!
