Alexander Calder ‘Red Nose’ Lithograph Worth $9K Sold For $12

Karen Mallet recently purchased a lithograph at a thrift store for 12 bucks only to learn that it is valued at almost $10k.

Mallet who is a media relations specialist for Georgetown University spotted Calder’s signature under the black/white and red print and googled it.
