Customer Question
I have a watercolor...

I have a watercolor painting that was my mother’s. Imlive in small city in Oklahoma and no one can even figure out the name of the artist. I just wanted to know something if anything about the artist. Painting is dated 1929. What should be my next corse of action?

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 important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

Not really except it is a beautiful watercolor.in my opinion.
