If the expert is unable to call me I’d like a refund , why should I pay for a call from the expert if he can’t call me ??

I received your photos. This is a fairly modern painting most likely less than 50 years old done by an unknown artist in a 19th century style. This was sold as a decorative pieces either by a decorator or a furniture store. This has a Resale Value of £150-200. Etsy, Ebay, Liveauctioneers, Craigslist and Facebook local yard sale groups are good sales venues for this painting.

THanks again,
