I have a W...

I have a W. Verschuur the Elder painting which I am having trouble with finding out it is authentic or not, what should I do?

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.

Had Hindman and Associates send pictures off to a Norwegian Appraisor with no luck , still have the digital pictures if someone else could view

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

Not really best judged by the set of pictures at this point

Hi,

Thank you for the image.

Please add clear, in-focus extreme close-ups of the signature and the surface so I can see the texture as well as a view of the backside (do not remove from frame).
