Hello, In order for me to properly assess what you have I will need to know the size and see images of the front, back (do not remove from frame) and a clear, in-focus close-up of the signature. If you had already attached images to your initial posting, they are not showing for me here on my end. Please send the photos at your convenience. There is not an extra charge to provide more pictures here. ~Nora

Both frames are the same size and shape. They measure 19" x 15" outside to outside, and 15 1/2" x 11 1/2" inside to inside. Please let me know if you need more information.

Hi, I have not yet received any images. How did you transmit them? ~Nora

Hi, On today's market, vintage Ernest Uden iridescent foil pictures sell for an average of $25 each. These were generally not copied or forged, so it is more than likely that yours are indeed authentic. Please take a moment to leave a rating by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating. ~Nora

The pic is signed. Would that make a diffrence? My friend is going to come over Friday to resend them. Im really sorry for the inconvenience. Sincerly, Jan

Hi, The estimate of sale value does include the fact that the foil picture is signed, as were the sales comparables. ~Nora
