I have inherited two framed pieces that I think are

Customer Question
Hi I have...

Hi I have inherited two framed pieces that I think are charcoal. I do not know who the artist is or even when they were done. My great aunt lived and worked in the Washington DC area for many years before her death in the late 1970's. I took them to a frame store many years ago and even the framer could not place them, but he thought he had seen something like these pieces in Maryland. I do know that my great aunt was a collector and supported local area artists. If I send you pictures of these pieces can you help me find out their origins?

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?

Not that I can think of.

Hello,
The next step would be for me to see pictures of the art,
signatures if any and back of completed framing for any writing or labels.
Use the Add Files feature on your screen to add pictures one at a time.

I am unable to find a match for this artist. I will opt-out and allow another expert to answer.
They will see our conversation and your photos. I am not able to respond once I opt-out. Good luck!
