    A customer brought in to me to frame these 1920's? Bar napkins. Has any of you ever see these before? Info on them? Value? napkins.jpg

    Be warned, topless stitched woman on 2 of these.

    I can't say that I have seen these.

    HOWEVER, many years ago I had a person who worked for a very important person ask if I was to be in on the following day. He wanted me to personally fit a drawing on a napkin into a frame he wanted to bring into the shop. The following day he brought in a portfolio with the napkin that had a pencil drawing and a finished corner frame. He stood behind me as I fitted it all together with all the supplied components. I did not recognize the artist at first then it dawned on me to who the artist was. I asked is it was worth $10k and all he did was smile and point his thumb in an upward motion.

    The drawing was not signed but had a symbol in the corner.

    Wow, neat story. Thanks for sharing that. Im curious if anyone would know someone I can contact about these. The local antique market says, well they are old.
