I did'nt pay much but believe it it authentic and quite valuable. how is an email attached. I have quite a collection of various items and looking for a forum to sell, many thanks
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Do you know how old the collection is?
Customer: I have a few vintage and antiques but this painting 19 1/2" x 14 1/2" acrylic/oil on board still life fruit is early speculate 1970/80s.
JA: What condition is the antique in?
Customer: quite good a few slight damaged bits around edges as not frame but otherwise clean and undamaged
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: no not yet


My name is Rarewares. Adding photos is free. I need one of the item and one of any marks, labels or signatures.
Photograph on a white surface for the best results (not red or a patterned background)

Attach or send pictures one at a time. Do not "batch upload" all at once
or none will go through.

COMPUTER- use the blue paper with arrow symbol by the SEND
to load one photo at a time by browsing your device. Write a word for each one in the writing
area before you hit send, something like front, side or bottom so I know what the picture is.

MOBILE/TABLET- you should be able to text them here.
Write a word in the comment box, attach photo then hit send and do the next.

I will answer back on the website not in texts.
