how would I know if they were hand painted?
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 8 months ago.

Hello

You can see they look like little paintings. Those are pretty rare, and are not found often. Most are printed, with flowers, or scenes of where they are from.

most of these are of women and couples. Some are embossed, raised printing. They are pretty funny actually pretty risque for the time period. Do you know of someone in my area that could look at these and give me an idea? I live in the suburbs of Chicago.

Hello

If some one looked at them for you, they will charge you to do so. They charge around $100.00 an hour with a minimum of 100.00 to start.

I can give you a general idea of what they sell for if you like. Then you can decide where you want to sell them. Most people sell them on Ebay. The Risque ones generally sell on the higher end.
