I found an old orginal print of the Toronto Stock Exchange,

Customer Question
I found an old...

I found an old orginal print of the Toronto Stock Exchange, 24/200... I will have to find a microscope to read the author and other data.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

Its from the time of first incorporation - AD1854. the authors signature I think reads 'Gaprian? .. black and white (but yellowish for effect)

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Building is centered with horse and carriages in front, and a borader of spirals like on a money note, ships are placed quarterly around the edges. I received it back in the late 1980's when I worked in the Investment industry.

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:

http://ww2.justanswer.com/help/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert-hl

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 really appreciate your time and patience...
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
thank you for this. I finally uploaded my photo's, I will forward them now..
can I use this email address to reach you?
Antique Expert: Doris, Personal Property Appraiser replied 11 months ago

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 ***@******.*** with the following EXACT information.

In the subject line put " Pictures for˜Doris in Antiques or Appraisals."
.
In the body of the message put, your site user name and real name.
.
Make sure to send these from the same email 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 or more.
.
They will forward them to me and as soon as I get them I will contact you.

Kind regards,

Doris

Antique Expert: Doris, Personal Property Appraiser replied 11 months ago

The pictures came through quickly. Thank you.

Unfortunately, I cannot read the tiny print.

Can you tell me what the fine print says?

Ask Your Own Antiques Question
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
nothing on the back...
the small print on the front reads:
left: very tiny (we are looking for a stronger magnifying glass)
right: J. Grant architect
middle is the address of the Toronto Stock Exchange on King Street, Toronto... I can't quite make out the first part,
might be floor number then street number.
If I can make it out tomorrow I will let you know.
Thanks!
Antique Expert: Doris, Personal Property Appraiser replied 11 months ago

What is the size of the print (not including the white margin) in inches?

Kind regards,

Doris

I must apologize.

I will not be able to respond to your questions once I opt-out.

Hello,

If you could please add a clear, in-focus close up of the small print on the left, I may be able to decipher that for you.
