Customer Question
FOUND A DRAWING ON...

FOUND A DRAWING ON THE BACK OF A BOX TOP, APPEARS VERY OLD , OF A YOUNG MAN, POSSIBLY AN INDIAN, TRYING TO RESTRAIN A HORSE. BEAUTIFUL DRAWING. SIGNATURE MIGHT BE A CIRCLE WITH INITIALS BG INSIDE

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?

I wanted to Search Artist signatures, not appraise art work

We can do that for you and let you know whether it is a listed artist or not.

This is why the photos are necessary.
