Customer Question

I have an original painting by Anne Huet Gundill. I would like to know how to go about getting it valued and sold
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. Is there any info on the back of the painting, or a certificate of authenticity?
Customer: No, but the artist actually wrote her name and address on the frame and a note to my husband who she gave it to about 20 years ago. The painting is signed. I actually met her many times, so I know it is genuine.
JA: What condition is the painting in?
Customer: It looks perfecf to me
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: I do not know of anything else, other than her family still live in Le Harve in France. I knew her persoanlly and visited her in E'tretar and also in St. Tropez a few tims while she was alive. I know she had two sons and I am in touch with one fo them.

Can you tell me when they will call?
Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Please ask your admin team why I have been charged £15.12 for this when I agreed to a £5 charge.
Expert:  Nora replied 15 days ago.

I will opt-out and open your question again to all the experts at no additional charge. If someone knows the answer they will post a response to you here. Do not re-list your question! That is a duplicate; it will be closed by admin and slows down the system. I will not be able to respond back after opting-out

Your question can be seen by all the experts. There is not a guarantee that you will receive a response.

I do hope you find the information that you seek.

If I do not hear from soneone at all, then I would request you to refund my money. It is not fair to charge and then not reply.

I've been working hard to find continuing a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
