Hello,

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

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

Hello,
here are the photos of the poses you requested. I don't know if they shed anymore light on the subject.
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

Hello,

Thank you for the images. However, in order for me to properly assess what you have, I really need to see a clear, in-focus close-up of just the signature at lower right and the very small print at lower left. Please include just those photos so we can proceed.

OK. Here they are. The Lower left writing almost assuredly says Paris. But there is also what appears to be an embossed stamping under the "EE."The signature in the right corner appears to have been made in pencil and it is on a textured paper. Thus it is not highly legible...

Hi,

I am not able to decipher the signature on this, however I can provide a date, material and value based on comparables.
