Looking for info on The Golden Tree by Judith Bledsoe, its 59/300 Lithograph I think.

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.

Did you get that?

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

No I don't think so its dated 1981? but its #59 of 300 signed by the artist.
