Customer Question
Can I send you...

Can I send you a picture and see what you can tell me about it

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.

I have a picture, wood on the back, metal on the front, it's got a picture of a boy and a girl on it. It says ART EXHIBIT KEANE 494... SAN FRANCISCO. The writing is backwards, so if you look at it in the mirror it reads right.

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

That is all I know

Hello,
My name isCustomerand I would love to help. 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'm not sure what I did there
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 5 months ago

Here are a few different options for sending pictures. The availability of each feature depends on which browser
(Safari, Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer) you are using and whether you are on a desktop or a phone.

1) Use the +Add Files feature next to the red SEND button on in the area where you write back to me
to upload photos of the item, including maker's marks.

2) Use the paperclip icon above the texting area where you reply.
The photos will upload when you add at least one word in the text box.
You won't see the photo, but the paperclip will turn green.

3) You can email the pictures to***@******.*** with
"forCustomerquot; in the subject line of the email and they
will forward them to me (please include the link to your question page).This way takes 24-48 hours.

When will you be able to call me
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 5 months ago

I don't personally use the phone service, another
Expert may be able to fulfill that separate request but I'm
happy to continue corresponding with you in writing here on the page.

I did not get any photos of this piece, so do try again using the instructions that I added last evening.

Im just going to email you the pictures. Since I'm going to do it that way I do have two of those plaques it what ever they are, for you to look at, is that ok, or will it cost more to do both?
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 5 months ago

I will cover both in this question for you since they are similar items.

Sending pictures via email will take a bit but I will let support know to send to me as well.

Thank you for your patience!

Thank you, I really want to send them this way but I just can't figure it out, what you told me didn't help
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Hey, I noticed in my bank account, you charged me for the phone call but you didn't call me!
Antique Expert: Rarewares, Antiques and Collectibles Researcher replied 5 months ago

It shows that the phone request is open meaning no Expert accepted it, so you were not charged for a phone call. I do not know much more than that.

The experts here are not employees of justanswer.com, experts are verified users who do not handle charges, fees, credit cards, memberships or subscriptions in any way or form.

I would suggest that you contact customer service (should be in the site map at the bottom)

to inquire about a charge that you do not recognize.

This is a copper printing plate for an art exhibit at The Keane Eyes Gallery

in San Francisco. Margaret Keane was a known artist famous for paintings of big-eyed

children. Her family runs the gallery now which has moved to

Larkin Street in San Francisco.

This printing plate dates to the 1980's and has a value of $60 to $80 resale.

You might contact the gallery and they could be interested.

Some sites that I recommend for selling are Offerup.com (local), Varagesale.com (local), Wanelo.com, http://www.decluttr.com, Bonanza.com, Ioffer.com, Etsy.com, eBay and letgo.com (local).
You can also go to invaluable.com or liveauctioneers.com and search their directory for an
auction house near you and consign to them.
Please do click the stars now for this one (bonuses are also welcome!), it is very important for me
