Bought a box of old books at a flea market in English Town

Customer Question

Bought a box of old books at a flea market in English Town N.J. in early 1970's. A very small charcoal picture fell from between two pages. Looks like possibly a German street scene, I thought very well done. The signature is difficult to read, something like Roffenbach or burg. Can you tell me anything about it? Thank You

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to know the size and see images of the front, back (do not remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close-up of the signature.

Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here.

the picture is 3x5 inches. I have no way to send a picture.. I understand it would b difficult to appraise an item on such little info. Lets forget the whole thing, I love the picture and that's all that is really important. Thank you Dee
