Fine Art/print worth framing??

Question
I recently inherited an unframed print on heavy paper, about 9.5 x 13 inches (the whole page is 13 x 17), fruit still life with dew drops and insects and butterflies.  Bottom left is 'A. Charal' and bottom right is 'Mourlot,lith.'  The condition is very good. Worth the price of framing?  Thanks.

Answer
Hello Ann,

You have some type of reproduction, possibly just a poster, and not an original work of art.  It has little if any value.  Do you like the work?  If the answer is yes and framing the work is in your budget then you should frame it so you can put it on display for all to enjoy.

Cheers, Brent
