Hello,

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.

If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end.

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

Hello,

Yes, I am very familiar with Sargent's work; my post graduate is from Christie's in London and I often work with fine art of this calibre.

I sent the additional services offer for a phone call, which you choose to accept or pass; however I would still need images prior to the phone call.

You can post photos here.

There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos:

~OR~

You can try emailing your images to *****@******.*** and write “For Nora/Antiques” in the subject line of the email.

Photos sent by email do not arrive to me directly nor instantly, they get forwarded to me by admin.

I look forward to reading back from you.

Sincerely,
