Alright Mefites. You have been a big help in the past and now I am asking again. I came across a set of three oil on canvas paintings that I really want but want to see if they are a decent investment.
Sorry for the terrible photos.
They are maybe 11x14 inches oil on heavy duty canvas. They have been nailed to a homemade frame. Some cracking in the paint. From what I am told by the seller they are circa 1800's circus or carnival banners from France. One of them is obviously Napoleon Bonaparte.
Do they look familiar to anyone. Any guess on value.
