Customer Question
I have an original...

I have an original arnold vail oit painting. How can I find what its worth?

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.

I'm not sure of the name of the painting, my dad gave it to my mom years ago and she gave it to me. it is pretty large and it is of multicolored roses in a basket.

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

It has been framed. I think Arnold is most likely the one that framed it but i can't be sure. on the back is some information put there by him from back when he used to teach
