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.

What is the size in inches not including the frame? Please do not remove from the frame.

Is the piece under glass?

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment. Can you send photos?

If so, then -

Please send photos of the back and front of the piece.

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:
