Antiques Road Show EA Edition
Does anyone else enjoy Antiques Roadshow? I know Kevin and I do.
I walked my dogs around the complex this morning, and out by the dumpster I found a framed "painting." I liked it, so after I finished my walk I went to look at it. The glass in the frame was not broken, the frame is in good condition, and the "painting" is actually not. It looks to me like canvas with yarn and thread making a beautiful birch tree, leaves, and birds. You have to be up close to notice that it is not painted... it is not Grandma's needlepoint (or if it is, Grandma has some serious talent!)
The frame has brown paper on the back and a label is affixed that says J. Assenheim & Sons, Importers of Paintings, Etchings, and Sporting Prints, Established 1870, 37 New Street, New York, NY.
1. What do you call this type of artwork?
2. How would one find out if it is of value?
