Customer Question
We own a large...

We own a large 31"x38" Oriental painting with a 4" wide gold border having Oriental trim whose subject is a Buddha-type sitting figure with a flower pot holding a few blossoms on the floor next to him. The "Buddha" is sitting under a rounded, domed - perhaps an artistic tree branch. This belonged to my husband's mother who has passed on and we are about to move so wonder if it is worth taking with us - or giving it to one of our children?

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The picture is inclosed under glass. Everything is in perfect condition and the effect of the color is mainly turquoise though the tree branch (?) is a light brown and several flowers are a dark pink color.
