Original BLACK CAT & MOON Treasure Box by Federico - PLEASE CRITIQUE!

I just finished an original and hand painted Black Cat & Moon Treasure Box. This was created using acrylics on a wooden cigar box, glitter, decoupage using vintage, new, and antique papers, Dresden paper, and vintage costume jewelry scraps, and vintage buttons. Oh, and a small quartz crystal point. An "altered art" piece with hand painted details.

I will be listing it this Wednesday on eBay, but in the meantime, I ask you to give me a critique. My husband, bless his heart, doesn't think I should list it for less than $150. What do all of you think? Comments?

It's beautiful, Becky! I'm struggling with the same thing right now - where to start a listing on a vrey labior intensive piece, and whether to place a reserve on it. Sooooooooooo tricky when you've invested a lot of time in something!

Maybe start it lower to encourage early bidding, but add a reserve for whatever amount would be the minimum you'd accept?

Thanks, Carolee! It's not just about pricing, it's whether or not collectors are interested in it and if they have any comments on the overall design!
