Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.
I have been an antiques and art collector as well as dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.
I will be pleased to help you. Please know I do not send pop-ups. Thoughtful responses take time.

Photos are almost always required to give an accurate assessment.

Please send a photo of the lithograph front and back.

Can you send a photo of the signature?

You may need to use the macro function (flower icon) of your camera to get a good clear photo of the signature.

To send photos you may use the "add files" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.
Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

Please tell me this size not including the mat or frame. Do not remove from the frame.

Is the lithograph numbered?

Kind regards,

I do not accept requests for phone calls. I give my best answers in thoughtful writing.

Besides, you will have an assessment to print out. There are extra charges for phone calls. I do not send pop-ups.

I cannot cancel your request for a phone call. You will need to do that via customer support. I did not send the pop-up for the phone call service. That is done by the site.

The reason the piece has texture is that the paper/canvas it was done on, had texture.

It is definitely not a lithograph but a print on textured medium. If it were a lithograph, it would have that information on the back. If you look at the back information, it simply states a museum print. These are normally sold in a museum gift shop.

If you wish, I can continue to give you value.

I truly wish I had better news.

Kind regards,
