Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please check the signature again. Could it be something else?

I am unable to find a listed artist by the name of R G Jaegger.

Kind regards,

Doris

PS: Meanwhile, please don't rate me until you get a full appraisal and a value from me. I mention this because you may get random prompts asking you to rate me before I've submitted an answer. Ignore them. They are automatically generated by the system (it doesn't seem to be able to distinguish an answer from preparatory back-and-forth and information gathering) and don't come from me.

Thanks, Doris

I have looked with my loupe and enlarged photo. Looks like it could be R A Yagger 1882? . I'll add pix of item, maybe you can make out the faded signature. I tried to send the jpgs but your system kicked me out. Can I text em to you
Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 1 year ago.

I would like to see at least one photo of the signature.
