Customer Question
I own a sketch...

I own a sketch of a pretty lady with hat in a gray wash with the signature

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.

Yes, continuing my description of the signature, it's in red ink"E.M." I think it might be an original Eduard Manet. the paper in like a graph paper with faded lines. It measures 7"x 4.5" and is handsomely framed in a 18"x24" gold and black frame.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Yes, the initials are made on an angle to the right and below the painting. The subject is turning her head over her shoulder. She may be Berth Morisot.
