Customer Question

Customer: We have an original ***** *****.K. Ralston painting dated 1944. It depicts a post office with people and horses around and a stage coach approaching from the distance. It measures 29" x 64" and is framed and in excellent condition. We are interested in finding out the value of this painting and how to best handle the possible sale of it.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: What more details would you like?
JA: OK got it. Last thing –ustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $18) to post your type of question to Antiques Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?
Customer: Sure, I can wait but how much will it cost me then?
JA: OK. Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit withustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello,

There are some listed artists with the last name "Ralston" however none of those listed artists have the first initial of K for their first name.

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to know the size and see images of the front, back (do not remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close-up of the signature.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.
