Customer Question
curious about the value....
I have a reverse painting that I am looking to sell and am curious about the value. It was bought in Thailand about 25 years ago for $1000. The frame is wood with gold leaf. It is in great condition quite large. Is there an email address I can forward the picture? Is there a charge for an estimate?

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
What is the size?
At your convenience, please send photos.
A complete image of the artwork including frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture will be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

Size is 34 x 24 1/4. Japanese reverse oil painting with painted background and crushed mother of pearl shell accents. The frame is solid wood, you can see planks of wood when you look at the back. Great condition but frame shows aging. Purchased at Suriwang Antiques Bangkok Thailand in 1989 for $1000. Please appraise and recommend how to sell. Thank you.
