I HAVE A MONTAGUE DAWSON PAINTING. IT IS A PAINTING, IT

Customer Question
Hi, my name is...

Hi, my name is Scott Hitson, I HAVE A MONTAGUE DAWSON PAINTING. IT IS A PAINTING, IT NEEDS TO BE AUTHENTICATED.

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.

WELL I CANT REMEMBER WHERE I GOT IT, MAYBE AT SALVATION ARMY. BUT I'VE HAD IT AWHILE. I SENT PICTURES OF IT TO " MASTER ARTIST" AND HE SAID IT WAS A PRINT!! BUT IT SAT FOR awile. SO I DECIDED TO TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT IT WITH A MAGNIFYING GLASS AND IT IS DEFINITELY A PAINTING!!

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

NO! JUST THAT THE PAPERBACK IS TORN OFF
