Hello,

Is the backside of the plate visible from the backside of the frame around it? Or is it glue mounted onto the backing? Is there a small signature on the front anywhere?

Expert:  Nora replied 10 months ago.

Hello,

There is one image attached here that I can see on my end, and it is the front of the plate in mounted frame setting.

Expert:  Nora replied 10 months ago.

Hi,

Would it be possible to send clear close-ups of that signature on the front and some details in her face and the rim as well as a picture of the backside, even though covered.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.

Ok, thank you for letting me know.

I do hope you find the information that you seek.
