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.

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

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

Hi,

Thank you for the image. What is the size? Can you please send a photo of the backside (do not remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close-up of the surface so I can see the texture.

Hi,

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.

Sincerely,

Nora

Hello,

You do have an original painting that dates to the late 20th century. Technically, an antique by definition in the US, is any object 100 years old or older. The artist is unlisted and this was primarily done as decorative wall art and not for investment purposes.

On today's market, the high sale value is $100.
