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-up offers. Although I am USPAP-trained, the assessments given here do not meet USPAP requirements.
Thoughtful responses take time. My responses are not instantaneous.

What size is your piece (in inches) not including the frame? Please do not remove from the frame.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment.
If you cannot send photos, I can still work with your descriptions; however, I can give more accurate answers if I have photos.
Can you send photos?

If so, then -

Please send photos of the front and back of your framed piece.

Please send a photo of the signature.

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the signature.

To send photos you may use the "ADD FILES" in the blue box link (next to "SEND") 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:

OR-

Site Help With Photos:

1-***-***-****

The Help service with photos does not cost extra. This is not the same as the pop-up that asks about phone calls. The pop-up is an extra phone call service related to the appraisal, not photos.

I do not send pop-up offers.

Kind regards,
Doris

I need to see photos and know the size to give an accurate answer.

A phone call would not be appropriate to meet those needs.

Kind regards,

Doris

I want to know what an old painting is worth. The artist
The artist signs his name "Orlando." It's about 15" by 20" and there is a registry on the back signed by him where he also entered a registry number that is very hard to make out but I think it is 13-967948. It also has an old piece of paper stapled to the back that is partially torn and I will indicate that with blanks. What I can read is "Pietrovanni Orlando -- He is know as Orlando, as he very infrequently uses his full name. He was born in Italy and has lived a typical Ital***** *****fe. His father was an artist in a suburb of Naples, and when Orlando was born in 1931, he was elated to have a son to follow in his footsteps. In his studies, he was supervised by his father ______________________ and when he was 14 years old he went to the ______________________ Institute where he took a major in sketching ______________________. On the advice of his professors, he began ______________________ color by reproduction from real life situations ______________________. He has enjoyed success in his exhibits and ______________________ currently in the United States." My father bought this for my mother in the late 1950's but I don't know where. (We were living in Pennsylvania but he was working near New York City and would come home on the weekends bearing gifts.
