Use the same email that you used when creating your account so that they will recognize you.
These do not arrive instantly, so thanks in advance for some patience when sending this way (might be overnight).

This is a lithographic print

that was created by the French artist Hippolyte Lecompte (1781-1857)

and framed and sold by the Lakeside Studio in Michigan. It was created in the 1850 time period and framed much later.

The print has a current value of $75 to $100 retail.
Try ads on these sites; artbrokerage.com, askart.com, artnet.com, artvalue.com, or artprice.com.
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house
near you that deals in fine art and consign to them.
To finish, I will need you to click the five stars at the top right of your screen and hit the green submit button, thanks!
