Customer Question

The painting hung in my parents home for a long time. It was given to my mother by her mother who got it from a distant relative in Chicago. My grandmother told my mother it was worth "some money." The signature (if there is one) is covered by the frame. I have not attempted to take it apart for fear of damaging it. The backing on the frame is securely and obviously professionally nailed on with small nails.
Suggestions? I can describe the scene if that will help.
