I purchased these 2 portraits at an estate sale. They are in poor condition. I thought I might be able to save maybe just the head area. That might not be good for original value, but at least I could save "FACE". If any one could help me with my decision, I would appreciate it. Also an other info. Thanks for looking.

    I am struck by the quality of the paintings. I believe I would keep them as is. The first picture reminds me of a cleric of some sort, perhaps Greek Orthodox ?Perhaps you could check with the clergy in the area of the sale.

    I agree, however the paintings were painted in early San Francisco. I found Jones & Wooll, they were framers. The artest Wise, little information. They are pretty funkey. Something has to happen, Iam not sure what.

    If I had your woodworking skills I would build a rectangular shadowbox two and a half times the diameter by one times the diameter.I would put one pictureon the left with a brace to hold it in place and the other picture on the right with its own brace to secure it. In the middle blank section I would make a copy of the logo on the back and mount it above a typed account of what you know about the piece. Glass the front, seal the back and you have an incredible 140 year old wall hanging!

    Great idea!!! A 3 part shadow box. I would need a large space to hang it. The pictures are 30 x 24. Thanks

    I would keep them as is, preserve them as much as possible.
