Hi Jeri
There is no need for a phone call, it is best to communicate here. I need to have all information in writing to do proper research.
What do you mean you need to know if it is Authentic? Is this signed by an artist?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it isn't signed, I am trying to validate the year and to ensure this isn't a fake.

Hi again, are you still connected?
Expert:  Glenda B. replied 1 year ago.
I am here. I can tell you this is from the early part of the 20thC, and it is a Reverse Painted Picture, which was common during this era. The frame is from that time period. Are you wanting a market value for this?
