Customer Question
I have a G...

I have a G. Lelong signed watercolor. What is the easy way to tell if it is an original?

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.

It is a scene of the “Arch de Triumph “ in Paris with cars and people strolling.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

I found this, it is framed and I have not tried to open it.
