@Tim R Johnson: Max, since you like antique roadshow, I suggest that you view the "Mystery of a Masterpiece" episode of Nova on the pbs.org website.  It is about a picture that was bought for $20,000, that was later determied to be an unknown painting by Leonardo DaVinci worth over $100 million.

Oooh -- interesting -- I will do so this coming weekend -- thanks for sharing

@mhrackin: If you wander about the SE US often, and you find yourself in Atlanta, let me know!  Maybe we can enjoy a bagel  brunch together!

I will do so -- I'm actually only about 4 hours drive from Atlanta -- I'm based in Huntsville Alabama (I moved here from England for the nightlife LOL)

@mhrackin: Do yours have any labels on the back like the one from eBay?

Nope -- the backs of mine are totally unadorned -- I did wonder about that Disney reference on the eBay one.

I missed the chance to get tickets for the Antiques Roadshow in Birmingham Alabama thsi year -- but maybe I'll get to go next year, in which case it woudl be interesting to see what they say...

Do yours have any labels on the back like the one from eBay?  From the looks of the eBay one, that one is a mass-produced "colorised" one (Brit spelling just for you!).  This would explain the Disney reference on the backside label.  It may be a series of COPIES of yours, the originals!

@Rich: Who needs Antiques Roadshow (or Pawn Stars) when you have eBay?:
SIGNED & Framed Ernest Howard Shepard 'Winnie-The-Pooh' Sketch

Wow -- this looks in exactly the same style as mine -- even the same type of frame -- except I have three sketches in each of my two frames. Cool Beans!!!

@mhrackin: My dad was an artist (and international marketing executive) and used to haunt all kinds of resale shops both in the US and as he traveled the world.

After WWII, my dad's brother -- my Uncle Pug -- was the manager of the Prince of Wales theatre in London. As a hobby he was a collector of rare books and a recognized book-binder by Sothebys -- whenever he came up to Sheffield for a family occasion, he would spend Saturday wandering down Abbeydale Road visining all the old junk antique shops and he would often return to London with the boot/trunk of his car jam-packed with ratty old books.
