What does this mean?

Dear Ruth,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be a woodcut print on paper with the measurements of 17 1/4 x 19 1/4 including the frame. The print depicts a group of men dressed in clothing of the working class in front of a cityscape in the background and has the title "View of Worcester". This print was made and signed by hand in pencil by the American artist Leonard BASKIN (1922-2000). he mainly worked as a sculptor, draughtsman, and graphic artist. This print belongs to the artist proofs edition which is a series of the first prints before the start of the normal edition itself.
Works by this artist were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 150 to 300 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
Georg
