I cant make out title or artist. Title looks like "A surrey Coomb" By John.........Pencil signature is really light. Did the best I could w/ Photos. Thought maybe you wizards could help. It's in poor shape and brittle. But really want to know if it's safe to throw out.

    'A Surrey Coombe' is the title of a painting by Richard Redgrave, which was exhibited at the R.A. in 1861.

    I'm not immediately encountering any other reproductions, so I suppose yours has value in that way.

    The phone camera kind of takes the human element out of the equation. At least for me, that's the case. I have a nice camera but don't have the time to learn how to use it.
