Hi, this is Mark with JA. I’ve been in the antiques and art business for nearly half a century. I think I can help with the painting. Can you send some photos? An overall shot, a close-up well-focused detail or two, one of the back or underside, and a good, clear shot of the maker’s marks or signatures, if any?

Photos should be attached to this thread. Here’s some help with sending files. Look for any of these links, depending on the device and browser you are using (see attachment). If that doesn’t work, try this link for more help: If all else fails, try calling Customer Service at(###) ###-#### and they should be able to help. Also, if you’re using a smartphone, JustAnswer has a free phone app.

Got the photos.  Thanks.

Wednesday morning and I’m just getting started. I have some questions ahead of you, but I promise I won’t lose you, OK?

Sorry, I've buried with questions and I've been running on empty all morning. I'm going to have to take a break. I’m just about to step away from the desk for a few hours. I’ll be back on board at about 12 noon Eastern Time USA, today, Wednesday. If you’re not available when I respond, you should find my reply when you log in again. Fair enough?

Back on it.  Sorry for the wait.  Checking now....

James Noble (1919-1989) was a British artist, well-known for his ultra-realistic floral still life portrayals.  The label verso indicates the Medici Society, founded in 1908, who promoted artists' individual works, but also sold prints through shops and galleries.  In this Internet format, it can be difficult to determine if a work is original or a print, especially with highly realistic works like this one.  So I'm proceeding on the assumption that your still life is an original James Noble painting.  Excellent condition, well-framed, resale value £800-£900.
