Are you able to send through any more images? Close up of the surface would be great
Don't take it out of the frame. I think it looks like a print. it's hard as the glass has a reflection. When you tilt it towards the light can you see the surface texture?
is it smooth or textured? is it a dry finish or quite shiny?
Ah yes - that could be a layer of varnish
Due to the pixilated colour I'd say it was a print
However it might help to see someone first hand with it. Where are you based in the UK? I can send you some suggestions
You can try these auction houses:
The John Stevens will be in the range of 150GBP - 200GBP

Great - is there an artist name anywhere?
It looks like Pears
If so, this is a copy of A Merry Christmas by the Pears Company, 1907 originally by Frank Dadd. It will have decorative value only - around 20GBP
Yes - that's the one!
A lovely reproduction but not holding high value sadly.
My pleasure :)
