    I found these two beautiful old parrot paintings. They are painted on a board and the frames are wood. Not sure of the age, but look to be fairly old. Can anyone make out the signature? Thank you, and any guesses on age would be appreciated IMG_3374.JPG IMG_3375.JPG IMG_3376.JPG IMG_3377.JPG IMG_3378.JPG .

    There’s a Catherine Kline a painter who painted parrots. Sorry, just had a search and the signature doesn’t match though and sometimes it’s spelled Klein. The surface looks a bit granular, is it oil paint or maybe some sort of print on a bumpy surface?

    Signature looks like CK Pine, although you'd think there should be a second period (full stop) after the K that isn't there.

    20s or 30s would be my WAG.

    Ohhhhh. Quite an odd way to make an l, though.

    Agree re dates. Decorative. They would have come out of a furniture store.

    They are painted, but on a textured board. The signature looks similar to C.Klein's, but not the same. Strange because some of the parrot designs on C.Kleins postcards look the same as the parrots.

    I wonder how they know it's American?
