Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.I have been an antiques and art collector as well as dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.I will be pleased to help you. Please know I do not send pop-ups. Thoughtful responses take time.
Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment. Can you send photos?
If so, then -
Please send photos of the front and the back.
To send photos you may use the "add files" 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.
An explanation of this method can be found here:
I also need the sight size in inches, not including the frame or mat. Please do not remove from the frame.
There is no hurry at this end.
When assessing an artist's work, appraisers must look at completed sales of works by the same artist. Art gallery sales prices are private.We must then go to auction sales prices which are public. When using comparable work by the same artist, medium, subject matter and size are factors to be considered.Appraisers most often use price per square inch of previously sold comparable works by the same artist as a measure of value.
This is the standard method of appraisal of art.
This is where you can see how to send photos.
If that does not help you can contact customer service via phone or email:

Besides, you will have an assessment to print out. Please know, that is why I do not send pop ups.
I received your photo of the certificate but I need the additional information.
Please send a photo of the print itself.
What is the size of the print not including the frame or the matt (inches, please)? Please do not remove from the frame or mat.
