    Welcome to the Forum, David!
    Thank you for your Service. Sorry to hear of your loss.

    The best way to find out about your items, is to split them up under the proper Forum Categories, ie. Art Forum for paintings. The dolls I would put in Antique Discussion (as we don’t have doll Forum)
    Please check Full Image when you post photos.
    Not trying to chastise, just get the best results. :)

    Welcome to the the forum!
    And I am sorry for your loss!

    I agree with @i need help that it would be better to split it to the proper forum categories.
    And the more pictures from each side, Label etc the better :)

    For the Rafael I found this, but I still suggest to split it separately In The proper forum categories with more pictures as this with the pictures provided would just be a guess

    Welcome to Antiquers, David. Thank you for your Service.
    Sorry for your loss. Many of us have been through a similar process of sorting through parent's memories and possessions. Choices are difficult, especially when you don't know if something has value.
    We will help where we can. In order for us to do that, please make sure your photos are full image.

    Hi David!

    Condolences on the loss of your mother.

    I tried to bring up the doll images in my photo program..... they are very tiny and can't successfully be enlarged, and they are out of focus.

    They look to be quite beautiful and not the typical Asian dolls that I've seen.

    I would love to see the details of them if you can provide better photos. I bet @Christmasjoy would too!

    Welcome David, Thank you for your service and sorry for your loss. You're off to a good stare by coming here. The experience of this combined groups efforts is awesome.
    We are currently dealing with the same situation as my Mother passed a couple weeks ago. Try not to get overwhelmed.

    I remember one with a lady & her cat that looked like this one, I may still have it - but if so it's several rows down behind other paintings & prints by now!
    Welcome David; I lost my mom last Thanksgiving and the people here were wonderful in helping me with things I didn't know anything about that she left me. Your definitely in the right place!

    My condolences Mikey and journey. It is so difficult having to deal with sorting things, when you are grieving and need time to get to grips with your own emotional roller coaster.
    Best advice.
