You are welcome.
I have looked and looked but I cannot find your artist under all the possible spellings.
Unfortunately, I cannot find an accurate answer for your question. I will release your question so that all the other professionals can choose to answer you with accuracy.I want you to have the best answer possible. Releasing your question is called "opting-out." I will not be able to respond to you once I opt-out.I am very sorry.
When will it be answered by someone else?
The signature on your watercolor appears as C.E. Seuris. In trying several spelling combinations as well as the overall style of the painting, this was done by an unlisted artist. These types of paintings were popular among hobbyist artists circa 1900 and they sell for an average high of $75 - $120 on today's market.
