original oil painting comes sold as shown, painted on board and framed. The signature appears to read C.M. Pappay, dated 1897. This is one fine oil painting, a masterwork of detail and fine brushstrokes reminiscent of Rembrandt’s striking seascapes. The frame appears to be antique as well, labeled “Carvers & Gilders / Picture Makers & Restorers / England.”

Charles Murray Padday (1868 - 1954) was an artist from England

and is listed with this signature and style, so it is authentic. This painting would have a value

of $1000 to $1500 based on recent sales of his similar paintings.
