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.

I note there is a signature in the lower right corner of your painting.

Can you tell me the name, please.

Kind regards,

I am sorry the artist for your painting is an unlisted artist.

This does not mean your painting is not well-done.

It means that the artist has not been recognized nationally or internationally; nor, has the artist's work been part of a major exhibition.

I will need to value your painting as being by an unlisted artist.

Please tell me the size of the painting, not including the frame. Do not remove from the frame.

I also need to know the medium - oils, watercolors, etc.

Kind regards,
