Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help. Please add images at your convenience by using the +Add File feature next to the SEND button.

I will need to see to see pictures of the painting,
signature and any labels on the back of the completed framing. The back of a painting tells us just as much as the front sometimes.

Give me time to do some research after you add pictures.
No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I do respond.

do you have a cell contact cell number i can send them to you directly
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 4 months ago

Here are a few different options for sending pictures. The availability of each feature depends on which browser
(Safari, Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer) you are using and whether you are on a desktop or a phone.

1) Use the +Add Files feature next to the red SEND button on in the area where you write back to me
to upload photos of the item, including maker's marks.

2) Use the paperclip icon above the texting area where you reply.
The photos will upload when you add at least one word in the text box.
You won't see the photo, but the paperclip will turn green.

3) You can email the pictures to***@******.*** with
"forCustomerquot; in the subject line of the email and they
will forward them to me.This way takes 24-48 hours.

can you confirm when i send the pictures to you for verification?
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 4 months ago

That offer is one other way to do it, you don't have to accept.

If you send via Email that will work, too.
