Customer Question
I TOOK A PICTURE...

I TOOK A PICTURE OF A PAINTING THAT HAS BEEN HANGING IN OUR PARENTS MASTER BEDROOM FOR ALMOST 50 YEARS...DONT KNOW THE ARTIST, BUT I DO HAVE A PIC I COULD SEND TO YOU VIA CELL PHONE...AND SUCH A BEAUTIFUL FRAME TOO

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 CANT FIND THE SIGNATURE BECAUSE ITS BELOW THE FRAME
