My name is ***** ***** I would love to help. The next step would be for me to see pictures of the print,
signature and back of framing where there might be labels or writing.

HI, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

The artist's name is ***** ***** Narinsky, known as S. Narinsky of Palestine. He took photographs in Jerusalem between 1910 and 1920, and photogravures of these photographs were issued by Jamal Brothers from 1921 on, mainly as tourist souvenirs and postcards. There were 115 images in total.

Your individual photogravure would be valued at around $50.
