    This came from my usual haunt, Salvation Army. It was in a Tupperware bin with a lot of other framed pictures and prints. I knew it looked familiar to me as being "Don Quixote and Sancho Panza", but I wasn't sure of the artist and it's not signed anywhere. Later online I found it instantly. The artist is Honore' Daumier a French print maker, painter and sculptor. There is a very faded frame stores label that seems to read W. Welker or Weller. There's no way to read the city, state or even country on the label, but it is still intact. The back is as well. Usually they are torn open looking for signatures and other signs of authenticity. I'll just leave it alone. Not sure if it has any value. I would say it probably dates from the 60's or so. When the musical "Man of La Mancha" came out there seems to have been a real resurgence in Spanish decor. Picasso's "Don Quixote" print was very popular too. -Mike-

      GW and Volunteer's of America are really the biggest offenders. Salvation usually leaves them alone. I hate when they pull out all the nails to the point where it's practically out of the frame. I picked a very large print once at GW and the glass almost fell out. Very dangerous and I told them too! She thanked me and asked me if I wanted it. I said no. I just thought someone could get seriously cut it if that glass fell out. They ended up taking it in back and throwing some tape on it.
