Fine Art/W H Trood "Puppy Class"


Hello, I hope you can help me with this. I have an old framed print, which appears to have been signed in pencil, W H Trood, no date. The painting is of a group of 9 dogs on a table and there is a sign in the corner the reads "Puppy Class". It is in relatively good shape, both print and frame. The actual print is about 9" x 18" (just an estimate as I can't seem to find a ruler) and looks like it is mounted to a matte of some sort. Is there any value to this ? Thank you for any assistance you can provide or direction you can point me for additional research. Dave

The artists works sell for various prices. I beleive there are original graphics and then cheap copies. I have no way of knowing what you have as I have not examined it.

There are dealers that sell this sort of thing, I am an expert in the 20th Century Masters, so I don't have a referral for this type of art.

I can answer questions about Salvador Dali. While I cannot do FREE APPRAISALS, I might be able to help you sell your works. I can also help with Chagall, Miro, Picasso and other 20th Century Masters.

Questions about a type of art or medium can be answered with one response in most cases. Technical issues are easier to deal with than specifics about an artist. If you need help finding values or history on an artist, it will probably involve research that can sometimes take hours to complete. If you have more than one image to send, I will give you an alternate email address as this system cannot handle multiple images.
