Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

This is a print, a lithograph, not an original painting.

Could you please upload an overall photo so I can tell which image it is? Also, is there a title on it, usually in the lower right corner?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is a lithograph # ***** of 1500. There is no title. Other than his name of James Colway. There is an artilce on the back tht states who he is and this is a reproduction of an autographed edition. The letter comes from Herbert Chase of Chase Galleries in NY. The picture is of a covered bridge over water

Thank you.

This print, "Covered Bridge and Fisherman," most recently sold through EBTH for $9.00, framed. (That was #450/1500).

Unfortunately, Colway lithographs rarely, if ever, resell for more than $50.00.

I'm sorry for any disappointment this may cause.
