Hello my name is ***** ***** I am one of the expert appraisers here at justanswer. I would be happy to help you. Gottlob FABER (1812-1884) He was a realist artist and did ships and still life. Not much can be found on his life but he has had paintings sell through auction houses. The last was this one 'SHIP ON THE WATER' sold at SUSANIN's Auctions 'Premiere Auction 126' in 2013. His values have ranged from 350.00-900.00 what is the size of your painting? Do you have a photo of the painting? This will help in my evaluating the piece for a value estimate.
