Customer Question
I’m looking to get...

I’m looking to get a painting my father has has since he was little. It’s a St. Thomas Lawrence the Calvary sisters. Oil on wood I think, could be a reprint not sure bc whoever had this before him cut the edges to fit in a frame. It’s at least 70 years old.

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?

I can send a picture if you’d like

I don’t have a signature but here are some pictures of the front and back. There was paper on the back that was ripped off.

This is a 1930's -1940's print of a famous painting by artist Sir Thomas Lawrence titled The Calmady Children. The original painting hangs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.

I will add a photo of the painting so that you can see that your print has faded over the 70+ years in comparison to the original colors. This print in an oval frame is valued at $75 to $100 retail.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local) , Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com,
Ebay and letgo.com (local).

You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an auction house near you and consign to them.

Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me to get good feedback for answering.
