Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you.

Please send me a clear close-up of the signature.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the marks.

To send photos you may use the "attach" or "add" link or "paper clip" you see on your reply page.

I look forward to your reply.

Kind regards,

Doris

Unfortunately, W. Jerome is not listed as an artist in any of the major databases. This means he/she has not been recognized nationally or internationally. It also means that his/her work has never been part of a major exhibition.

The art market is name driven. W Jerome does not have name recognition needed to bring high values.

The watercolor here has a retail art gallery value of $350-500 assuming good condition.

I know this must be disappointing. I wish I had better news.

A private seller to a dealer or at auction can expect 30-60% of retail value.

I hope I have helped you.

If I can help you with further questions about this answer, please let me know before you rate me.

All my answers are quoted in USA dollars.

I endeavor to give realistic, honest answers in a timely manner.

Please take a little time to give me a POSITIVE RATING NOW SO THAT I AM COMPENSATED BY JA for my time and effort. This is of NO COST TO YOU.

Please do not rate me down because of system difficulty.

Please let me know if you have difficulty with the site's rating system. To rate me, you should see 5 stars near my answer. 5 stars gives me the best rating.

Kind regards.

Doris

If you would like to use me on any future questions, requesting me expires in a short time. If you put my name (Doris) at the first of the question, that will make sure it gets to me.

Thank you.
