Hi There~
My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question.
What is the size?
Would it be possible for you to send me photos?
A complete image of the artwork including frame both front and back (do not remove from frame), a clear in-focus close-up of the signature, and a close-up of the surface so I can see the texture will be ideal.
When taking a clear close-up try using the macro function on your camera. It looks like a small flower icon. This will allow sharper focus at a closer-range.
If there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link:

I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send images right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here.
Sincerely,
Nora

Hi Paul,
Thank you for the images and for your patience.
This is a later 20th century color lithograph framed print of a 19th century work by Arthur J Elsley.
On today’s market, expect to garner $40 - $80 for this framed print. The suggested insurance or replacement value is $100.
