Customer Question

I have a very thick piece of glass with a scrolled edge and a hand draw picture of a Kewpie doll with it looks like the name K Smith and a date which I am unable to read? It is maybe 6 to 7 inches wide by 12 inches long. I can take a picture of it and send it email if need be.

HelloIs this mildew on the paper? Is this paper stuck to the glass, as if it were glued to it? The artist who created Kewpie was Rosie O'Neil, in 1909. This appears to be a sketch or the Kewpie by a K Smith how is not a known artist. Glenda

I did a little bit of checking on my own and found out a ***** ***** was a maker of Kewpie Camera. Not sure if this is same K Smith as on paper. No it is not mildew on paper. It looks like it got damp at some point. Yes the paper is stuck to the glass as if glued to it.

HelloHe did create the Kewpie Camera but, it was not connected to the Kewpie doll. I can not find any artist in any of the data bases that sketched kewpie signed K Smith. I believe this was done by an individual, perhaps a local artist or art student. It can be valued for what it is, and that it is artist signed. Glenda
