No problem. I'm trying to date this painting by looking at the back of the canvas.
The frame is Victorian era plaster guilt. This was most likely done in Switzerland as you can see the alps and a large lake. This was a popular subject circa 1890-1910 painted for tourists to buy as momentos of their visit to the Alps. Similar paintings are still being painted today. It appears to be in excellent condition including the frame. It is common for these to be unsigned. This would sell for $400-600 at auction and insuranc value is $1200.
