Signatures

My mother has had these two prints rolled up in a cupboard for about 20 years.
I would like to get them valued, but neither the appraisor nor I can read the signatures.
He has searched names ending in "onk" and "onte", and the only possibility is Nonte, but the first names do not match.
Can anyone offer any other information?
Please?

Write to the Antique Road Show people with a photo or someone like them.? Just a thought. Wonderful to have these.

I haven't a clue but nonetheless, they are treasures!

Several web sites have signature data bases. I spent a few hours going through them, and none of the artists who have B. as a middle initial seem to have a signature even remotely like that. Mind you, I only went through about half of them.

And this is just the beginning.
Good luck in your quest.

Hope you get a lead on the signatures. Love those episodes of Pawn Stars when they bring in the expert to verify signatures.
