I have an old picture that appears to be lines drawn very close

Customer Question

I have an old picture that appears to be lines drawn very close together. Depicts a family around a table, and a little boy with a dog under the table. Big frame, somewhat ornate. Picture itself has a kind of bleak feeling.
My problem is that I'm totally ignorant regarding art, and at this time I can't afford to have it professionally appraised. I'm just very curious, there's a 5th generation living with it now and he's just as fascinated with it as the rest of us have been.
Any advice? Thanks very much.

I'm fighting with the phone and computer trying to send photos. I'll keep working on that.In the meantime, dimensions of the visible part of the picture is 19-1/2 × 17-1/2", overall 31 × 27". It is backed with wood.

The files are too big to send, even send each photo separately the smallest file size is 5,900 so it gets rejected. I could fax, but picture quality wouldn't be good. What now?
