Customer Question

I need an appraisal on 2 framed art pieces that appear very old. One is an oil painting in a hardwood frame (maple wood interior border). There is a paper notation on the back that states "This painting was done by the sister of Maxfield Parrish,". It was purchased in Newport, RI. many years ago according to the note. The signature on this note is Mildred Stone Clapp. This oil painting is of a 2 masted schooner.

Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser, and I'd be happy to help.

Only one photo uploaded. I will need a clear close-up of the front, back, and signature, on each painting.

Also, I need the approximate sizes.
