Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques and art collector as well as dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you. Please know I do not send pop-ups. Thoughtful responses take time.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment.

Please send me at least one photo of each piece of art.

To send photos you may use the "add files" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

What are the sizes not including the frames? Please do not remove from the frames.

Kind regards,

I am only able to respond to you in this format.

To use the email method to send photos, you will need to follow these instructions carefully/exactly or they will not get to me. It can take 24 hours. The first method I sent you is instantaneous.

This is the official explanation of how to send photos via email:

Please follow the directions exactly or they will not get to me.

Send the picture to ***@******.***

In the subject line put " Pictures for˜Doris in Antiques or Appraisals."

In the body of the message put, your user name and name.
Make sure to send these from the same address that you registered with

Just Answer, so they can verify who you are.

This method takes longer because the photos are sent to the Just Answer

techs who must forward them to me. It sometimes takes as long as 24 hours.
They will forward them to me and as soon as I get them I will contact you.

Kind regards,
