Hello and welcome! My name is Doris.

I have been an antiques collector, dealer and appraiser for over 56 years.

I will be pleased to help you.

Please send a photo of your painting.

To send photos you may use the "reply to expert" or "add files" in the blue box link on your reply page or the "paper clip" found in the toolbar you see on your reply page.

Please do not send in ZIP format. The jpg or jpeg format works best.

An explanation of this method can be found here:

I also need the size, not including the frame. Please do not remove from the frame.

Kind regards,

Doris

I am having trouble reading the signature. Please tell me what you think the name is.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.

I was having trouble that's why I sent it to you.

Expert:  Doris - dfm925 replied 3 months ago.

Thank you for the information and photos.

Please allow me time to research the data required by your question, calculate current values and write my answer.

This search is going to take some time. The artist is not well-known.

I will get back to you this evening. I am on Central Time USA. It is 6:18 here now.

I thank you in advance for your patience.

Kind regards,

Doris

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.

Kind regards,

Doris

When will it be answered by someone else?

Expert:  Nora replied 3 months ago.

Hello,

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.
