I meant to post this awhile back but the Japanese Harry Potter shop permanently closed in February of this year. So if you have any of the Japanese stuff in your collection it just became a whole lot rarer.
Yep, those are the ones from Noble. You are lucky to have two of them! Congrats!
The candles are awesome, some of the more unique replicas available!
You could try putting up a sale thread in the JY (junkyard/classifieds) section, but I think you will need to be a member for at least 45 days and have 20 posts made. There's always ebay, but I hate the fees on there.
You could always try PMing BlackMarketMagi here on the RPF and ask him either their potential value or if he is interested in purchasing them; I know he's one of the most informed on HP collectibles and buys and sells some of the best stuff.
Well that is an interesting question, there is a lot of confusion?? on that subject. One sold on ebay for $3800 back in 2008 I believe. A non ebay site said they recently sold one for over a thousand and then another one for $6450 on 7/1 but there is no way to verify that. Then there was one on ebay last week that sold for only $810 and it looks to be the same people so it is really hard to say. The last one on ebay also said there was only 16 of them which I find hard to believe. If so then I personally would know where over half of them are which seems unlikely to me.
Wow! Neat thread! Thanks for sharing
