I will need the following:1. one of the main piece of art2. one good, clear, sharp one of the artist signature
Condition? (fading, brittleness, paper toning, water stains, creases, etc)Any idea of the age?Any history on it? (such as how long you've had it and who had it before you, etc)I assume this is colored as opposed to B&W?

++++++++++++++Hello. I am still here to help you with your question if you can supply me with the information I requested above (although certainly no rush). Thank you. - "Diane in PA"
The measurements are 21x32
please find information you ask for
Hello, nice picture. Do you think there is a possibility that this could be pressed tin?
no it seems to be a paper of some sorts
If it feels more 'paper-ish' it's very possible it is papier mache'.
so what do I have and does it have an value and how od is it
There looks to be a little bit of wear on the frame so if someone bought it they would probably want to replace the frame, which is an added expense. If it is thick embossed (a.k.a. "relief") paper or papier mache' it would probably be from the 1940's or 1950's. It is a nice size in a beautiful style. A small game hunter would probably pay between $50 (low end, or "quick sale") and $125 (high retail, or if you 'hold out' for the right buyer). +++++++++++++++++I hope I have been both helpful and timely in answering your question. ;-)Please click "Accept" if I have been of any assistance to you.
