Hi! My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am pleased to assist you. Could you provide an image for review and note the size, medium and overall condition, paying special attention to ANY visible flaws?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Its in an old frame and is aged. The detail as a whole is much different than the prints I have seen on the inter net. I can send it to you by my I Phone. It has a pencil signature in the lower right corner and a 2/ Name? in the lower left corner.

Thanks!

Frits THAULOW (1847-1906)

Based upon a review of information you provided and published completed sales data for similar items, the current fair market value is estimated to range from $12,000 to $30,000 based on overall condition and regional market demand.

I realize the range is a bit wide, but this artist is very up and down in this economy...I posted a few of the most recent offerings below for your review--note several failed to meet reserves or sell.

 

 

I would suggest you contact any one of the galleries listed who have successfully sold similar works...that is where you will realize the highest return in most cases.

 

 

Hope this information helps and thanks for using JustAnswer!
