Fine Art/signature help


I have an old oil painting with a very faded signature on it. it looks turn of the century, maybe a little older.  It is in the original frame. I cannot figure this signature out, please if you can help that would be great
Thank you for your time,   Lauri

Dear Lauri,
I can try to help if you can email good quality jpeg images of the signature and the entire painting, including the back, to The signature is very faint, as you mention, but I'll try to enhance it to get a better image.
Best regards,

Fine Art
