Customer Question
My wife and I inherited...
My wife and I inherited a very old painting from her parents that we have no idea of the value or who painted it.
All we know is that it has been in her family for many years and is extremely old.
We would like to find out the value and perhaps sell it. How would we go about doing that.

I am not getting a satisfactory answer after sending a picture of the back. I had to call and have an email sent to me. I think I should ask for a refund because I believe this was a complete mistake! There is no way it should take this long with no communication in between. I know its been completely forgotten but you sure did "grab" the $38 quick enough!
