I inherited what appears to be a drawing of English setters

Customer Question

I inherited what appears to be a drawing of English setters and I would assume it was done in charcoal. It is signed but I can not see the entire name, the first name is ***** ***** the last name starts with Tom (I cant read the rest due to the framing) and the year on it I believe is 1905. Any idea how I could find out if this is worth anything.

Hello MarkWithout having the name of the artist is impossible to know if that artist became famous or not. We see these sketch drawings a lot, they usually are done by young artist who are taking classes. Art was a large part of young women's teachings in the early 20thC. I am sure that is what this is. It can be valued for what is, which is a very nice, well executed drawing, if you like? I would need to know what size this is. Glenda
