I have two nice pictures with a very clear signature

Customer Question

I have two nice pictures with a very clear signature "Ferguson" one is of a poor boy w/o shoes and the other of two poor women with load on their heads. Both are almost like a picture with many details , very realistic. Both pictures are about 50 y/o. Certainly not much more than that
I wonder if this painter, Ferguson, is well known. Could you please advise me how to proceed?

There is one image of the signature "Ferguson" attached here.

In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to know the size and see images of the front and back (do not remove from frame).

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

I am wondering if you are still interested in having your item assessed?

Please let me know and do you have requested images available?

I look forward to reading back from you.
