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 know that I cannot accept any requests for "live conversations" such as phone calls. I must research up-to-date data to give the most accurate answer.Sometimes a "Chat box" will pop-up asking if you would like a live conversation. Please know it is not from me.
Please send me photos of the print both front and back as well as a clear photo of the writing and signature if there is one.
You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.
If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the marks and take a photo of the sketch.
To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or "paper clip" you see on your reply page.
I do not know why you were disconnected but I am back.
Were you able to receive my message?
I am sorry about the cut-off. I do not know what happened.
Please tell me the typed words you found on your print (I think these are on the back).
The image of those was not clear.
Is that where it states Gift of.... that you described in your question?
Can you tell me any letters after the 1973 in the front right corner of your print. It looks as though the last name starts with a "B."
It is very important to try to read these letters as they form the signature of the original artist.
Understood. I see where you described the typed letters in your original question.
What I am trying to have you decipher is the letters in the lower right after the 1973.
Again, these are important as they form the artist's signature.
Perhaps a close-up of the signature after the 1973 would help.
I must go to see my doctor in a few minutes. I shall return in 4 hours.
If you are in a hurry, I can release your question so that another expert can try to answer your question.
I am back now. Thank you so much for your patience.
It would be very helpful to have a clear close-up of the letters after the 1973.
You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the letters.
If you cannot get a good photo, then sketch the letters as they appear to you and take a photo of the sketch.
Thank you for the effort it took to make and send these photos but none gives me what I need.
Please take a close-up of the letters AFTER the 1973. I believe that to be the signature.
Unfortunately, I cannot find an accurate answer for your question. I will release your question so that all the other professionals can choose to answer you with accuracy.I want you to have the best answer possible. Releasing your question is called "opting-out." I will not be able to respond to you once I opt-out.I am very sorry.
They will automatically get them.
I must opt-out again. I will not be able to answer you again.
