Customer Question

Good evening.
JA: Hello. How can I help?
Customer: I have a oil painting from my father, painted on tin, it's very dirty, I can't see a signature, my dad said it's German school of arts?
JA: What would you like to learn about the painting?
Customer: It's origin. And how much to clean it?
JA: The Antiques Appraiser can help. You can also send photos once I've connected you. What's the age and condition of the painting?
Customer: I'd say 150 years, not sure, in a old frame, really dull, been in my family at least 50 years, never cleaned.
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?
Customer: No. I can take a picture

Hello,

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

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you!
