Hello,

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.

I don't have access to photographing it . The picture is about 8" x 12". It is beautifully framed so I can't show you the back. The signature is in pencil and she also wrote the title below the picture in pencil

I am starting to feel like I have been taken advantage of for $38. I have gotten free estimates before, but couldn't remember the source this time around. I want to say his name was Kramer.

Thank you. I have other lithographs that have had a value of $1,000.

Hello,

An asking price can be in the range of $750 - $1000 and an insurance or replacement value is higher. Essentially, you can ask any price you please for any item you own, the key factor being finding a buyer at your price point.
