Hi,

Thank you for the request here. I see the edge of an affixed label on the upper left backside of one of the paintings. It is cut-off in the photo. At your convenience, please send a clear, in-focus close-up of the label.

Hi,

Thank you for your patience. These date from circa 1900 - 1920. They are original paintings based on Victorian era genre scene prints. The artist was a hobbyist and these would fall under the category of 'primitive' works. In reference to the name 'Paul' written in pencil on the back paper, more often than not, last names written on the backside of framing paper were the name of the buyer who ordered the framing. These would be collected more for antique decorative purposes than as fine art for investment purposes. On today's market expect an average of $50 -$75 each. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $150 each.

Hi,

Please note that I only assess one item or matched set per question here. I will be happy to help with this painting, however in order to do so, please start a new question thread and add "Hi Nora" or "For Nora" to the question. In the meantime, if you could please take a moment yo leave a rating for the answer provided on the pair of genre scene paintings, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you,

Nora
