Customer Question
I have a print frame...
I have a print frame by Vilas.Mages Co. (Chicago)of Salvador Dali's piece, "Christ of St. John of the Cross. Odd sized framing....about 9' x 15". Parents have had since about 1960...frame a little beat up. Is it worth getting reframed...or the frame / picture restored (it is a dirty).

Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
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.
There may be an +Add Files button or 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
