Question
Do you have an email address that I can send photos of this piece?  I have tried to attached them in your space provided, but was unable to do so. Paul Soyer was a teacher to Mary Cassatt and the original Lacemakers painting is in a Paris museum. Engraving I have is signed by both the
artist Paul Soyer and etcher Claude Faivre who was a pupil of Charles Courtry(1846-1897. Excellent condition with minimum color change in the mat area. Framed by Frederick Keppel & Co..
Rare Engravings & Etchings New York City. Thank
you for your time and consideration.

Answer
Carol--sounds lovely.  You never asked a question, except for my address.  If you are interested in value, I checked my auction record service, and not one engraving or any other original print has come up for auction in the last year or so--worldwide.  You could contact Sotheby's, who would have a record of ANY sales they have made of Soyer's engravings.  Good luck.  Alan Klevit.

Expertise

I can provide sound advice on buying, collecting & understanding fine art, especially original works by 20th century masters and leading contemporary artists. I can also explain techniques used to create original works and offer tips on how to tell whether or not a piece is an original work of art.

Experience

I have been active in the art world for twenty-seven years. I owned and operated four galleries and a wholesale showroom on both coasts. We specialized in original works by 20th century masters and emerging artists. I have been an art consultant, artist's representative, lecturer, auctioneer, and curator. I had a radio show for two years, "Today's Art World with Alan Klevit" [Washington, D.C.]; hosted two television shows on the arts for six years [Los Angeles Area]; have written for numerous local papers and international art magazines; and currently write a syndicated column, "The Art Beat." I conduct art auctions for charities throughout the United States, and am a frequent speaker/auctioneer on upscale cruise ships, and at civic organizations and local television shows.
