Hi,My name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to help you with this question.Your needlepoint picture was framed in the late 1940s or early 1950s, which is when the needlework was done. The value is definitely in the frame.If the picture and the frame are in very good condition, the current retail (replacement or insurance) value of the picture and frame is approximately $400. If you were to sell it, you could expect to get the fair market (private sale or auction) value of approximately 40% of the retail amount.I hope this answer has been helpful to you.
