Hi,

Thank you for the request here. I just want to confirm that this is unsigned?

unsigned as far as I can see
Expert:  Nora replied 1 year ago.

Hi,

Thank you for checking and for your patience.

Your painting dates to circa 1900.

It is referred to as ‘vernacular’ or ‘primitive’ art, meaning done by someone that was not formally trained. Being unsigned, and likely by an unlisted artist, who executed this painting cannot be definitively stated.

The size indicates it was likely used as an over-the-mantle decoration or over a buffet sideboard.

It is on the original stretcher frames but it is not framed.

On today’s market, expect to garner a high of $150 - $300 for this.
