Customer Question

I've recently discovered an old painting in family storage. Accompanying note says it is original from Rennasaince period on canvas, transferred from wood. I see no signature and do not want to remove the fragile frame. How might I identify the period? Style? Value?

What is the size, and at your convenience, please send images of the backside (do NOT remove from) and clear images of the front of frame and painted surface as well as the note that accompanied this.

I am wondering if you are still interested in having your item assessed?

Please let me know and do you have requested images available?

I look forward to reading back from you.
