Customer Question
I own a very...

I own a very large oil by Norwegian artist J. Hammerstad and would like to know more about its possible value before having it cleaned.

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.

This is a landscape, water and a boat in the foreground, mountains in the back....almost 4 feet wide, 3 feet high. ….has hung here for 70 years, and I will need to get the restorer out here to look at it, because it is too heavy to remove safely....I knw the artist worked in the Chicago area and have verified his signature with the Norwegian museum in Decorah

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

No...only that I am not able to photograph it for you

Use the +Add Files or UPLOAD or attachments feature next to the SEND button to add photos of the item, including maker's marks.
The feature works best when you add ONE picture at a time, put a word in the text box, hit send, then do the next.
