Customer Question

I have an Icon that my mother brought over after WWII. It was given to her by her grandmother. My mother is 84. Her grandmother gave it to her as she smuggled her out of Yalta ahead of Stalins troops retaking Ukraine from the Germans. My great grandmothers family were today's equivalent of upper middle class before the Bulshivic revolution. I have always wanted it appraised to know the true value.
