Customer Question

Hi I have an oil painting framed by Ludwig Katzenstein Inc. Is there any way to ascertain value and name of artist through the framing company?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the antiques appraiser will be able to better assist you.
Customer: It is a dusk winter scene, wooded with a red cabin...snow on roof and ground. Lighting similar to a Hudson River School artist. Signature might be Couly 12. Hard to say for sure.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the antiques appraiser should know?
Customer: It was purchased in a small town in Vermont? Framing was done at their w. Pratt street address. There is a number on label SA 7-0748

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the painting,
signature and any labels on the back of the completed framing.
