Customer Question
I have a sketching...

I have a sketching in charcoal I believe of a persain kitten that belonged to my grandparents that was given to me by my aunt years ago. I have tried to find out something about it but havn`t been able to. I know somewhere years ago I think I saw another one just like it but can`t find it now. Anyway, this one is hanging on my wall, and is covered in plastic-which it has had on it since my grandmother had it. I know it isn`t a print-it is real charcoal or lead like from a pencil. That would explain why it is covered. It has a name-T. Oughton. I believe Taylor Oughton.

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 important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

My family is from California- I was born there and that is where it came from.
