Fine Art/Louis Icart

Question
Hello. My friend came across a huge stack of Louis Icart prints in her grandfathers basement(he passed away). They all have his signature on the lower right(looks like its printed the exact same way on every one) and they also have raised stamps on the lower left corners. Are the raised stamps indicators of original prints? How can one be sure?

Answer
Hello:  if you are talking about marks in the plate, it is an indicator, another one could be the signature and number of edition. An original graphic should bear a signature and some numerals, ex 10/500, means: #10 of edition of 500. Size, stamped yes or no, etc are indicators, if you could send me all information I'd help you a little more.
Sincerely.
