Fine Art/$$$$


I own a lithograph of Sierrs Sunrise by D. John Massaroni. It was my parents. I have a Certificate of ownership number 00174 from the United States Commemorative Fine Arts Gallery. Is this worth anything? Thank you for your time.

Lithographs are not considered "fine art".  You should be over in the collectables or perhaps antiques forums.  

One can enter "Dino Massaroni" "Sierra Sunrise" on an Internet search engine such as Google and find a plethora of vendors and other information regards this print.

Not being expert in lithographs, but seeing what comes up on such an Internet search...I would venture that your lithograph is a very, very common picture, and hence not worth more than any fine looking decorative print.  Often the frame is worth more.

Best of luck,
