Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.
Can you post a close-up of the surface, so I can see the detail?
Thanks. I have a long meeting today but will address this in the early afternoon.
I am still trying to get a feel for it, it's difficult in the photos through the glass. Is this on paper, with the gold parts raised slightly? Or is there a distinct edge to the gold parts, like they were cut out from a separate piece and attached to the black background?
Thanks. This does appear to be a temple rubbing, with gold pigment rubbed over black paper. It's from Wat Po in Bangkok, Thailand.
It's quite well done, and well framed, but that being said, these are never particularly valuable items. The resale would be perhaps $100.
Please let me know if you have any other questions about this item.
I see you have not yet accepted or rated my answer. Do you have further questions on these items?
