Hello,
This is a print that was done in 1976 to commemorate the artist Marc Chagall and the exhibition that was held at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem. The print would have been sold in the museum store. The writing on the certificate is Hebrew (Chagall was Jewish). This piece has some yellowing, you should remove any cardboard or paper backing and have it replaced with acid-free archival board. This will stop the acids from what is behind it from essentially eating the paper. This piece is worth $450-525.00.

Thank you. How do you suggest I go about selling this piece. Not sure where to do that.
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 3 years ago
You would contact an auction house and if they accept it, then send it to them for their next appropriate auction.
Since this is a Jewish piece, sending it to Israel would give the best result. Check out this auction house and write to them.

If you want to keep it in the states, then these people would be good as well.

On each site, read about their terms so that you know what to expect.

If none of these pan out, then I can always keep going or find a house in your local area (hopefully).
