Customer Question
I have two pictures...

I have two pictures in very old frames which have been in my husbands family many years.They are made out of stamps cut to shape to form flowers and a bowl in one picture a horn shaped vase in the other with a beautiful blue bird and flowers also embroidered.My discribtion does not do them justice,l have taken photos if they would help

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 the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?

The frames are black carved wood and very decorative
