My great aunt was Jessie Sayer,an artist who specalised in paintings of english countryside for Greetings Cards,Chocolate Boxes etc. She was a member of the Royal Academy and had at least one picture displayed there. She was married to Alfred Wood an artist and Picture restorer for National Gallery.could it be his signature also on painting?Period is about right.I own a couple of her Paintings,if futher interested get in touch.
