I have recently purchased a work of art and when I took it out of the frame...behind the art was 4 hand painted panels of advertisements for books. They appear to be from the 1920's, from the information I've gathered on the books. They are hand painted and have a paper copy of the front cover of each of the books attached. They are in very very good shape...the colors are unbelieveable. The only damage I can see is the edges on a few were rubbed a bit and they have some tape which is water based, which I am going to remove. I know how. The only other thing I can see is that they cut a little off the bottom to fit them in the frame. This doesn't really detract from the beauty of the panels.
I was wondering if you could possibly help me figure out what they are and what they might be worth? I have looked all over the internet and cannot find anything like them. I'm thinking they must be pretty rare.
Thank you!

    how large is each one? Perhaps they were original cover designs to be turned into printed reproductions?
