Fine Art/1894 M.B. Parkinson


I purchased this piece yesterday, not so much for the picture but the frame is wonderful. upon wiping the dirty glass the Happy Days caption and three little girls was under all the dirt, it is beautiful. It does have some water damage around the edges. How do I care for this and what would you suggest for cleaning the intricate frame?    Thank You for your time, Tracy

I see no image?  If you feel you have fine art, take it to art restoration and have it cleaned up and restored. If you feel you have decorative affordable art, take it to a framer and have them reframe using the same frame and new mats etc. The framer should have what is needed to clean a frame. If you are doing it yourself, you should study up on it a bit first. If glue was used to assemble, it can be quite a bit of work to fix.

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.
