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 give my best answers in writing when I have time to think about them.Sometimes a "Chat box" will pop-up asking if you would like a live conversation. Please know it is not from me.
Please, if there is a signature, please send me a close-up clear photo of the signature.
You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the signature.
To send photos you may use the "attach file" or "add file" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.
If another professional enters our exchanges, feel free to tell them that you are working with me if you wish.
Please send a photo of the back without removing the paper backing.
Also, have you tried taking the painting to the Richard Tobey Framing Co? Perhaps they could look in their records? Or, if you send them the photo of the piece, they may remember it.
See attached snipping photo of their contact info.
