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.

Expert:  Nora replied 6 months ago.

Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

You have a 2007 framed color printed reproduction of a painting by Geoff Hunt with texturized surface made to appear like an original painting. If you look closely at the image of the signature you provided for me, you will see a dot matrix pattern on the surface that is indicative of machine printing. It was common throughout the 20th century for publishers to print images of paintings and sell them as decorative wall art through decorator, furniture and framing shops.

On today's market, this could sell for a high of $80 - $160. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $200.
