Hi There~ My name is ***** ***** I am here to help with your question. What is the size? At your convenience, please send 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. There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing on your board, then follow the steps on this link: http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert I look forward to seeing the images. If you are unable to send photos right away, that is fine – there is not a time limit here. Sincerely, Nora

Hi Jane~
I received your images and thank you for your patience.
You have a pair of antique circa 1900 framed photogravure prints of paintings by Scottish artist Joseph Farquharson (4 May 1846 – 15 April 1935).
A photogravure print is a printing process that uses a camera. It captures the likeness of a painting in full detail and they are usually in a sepia (brown) tone or black and white.
Here is a link for you on a short bio about the artist:

Here is a link for you on the photogravure printing process:

On today’s market, expect to garner $400 - $600 for each picture, or $800 - $1200 for the pair.
