Thank you for the image and dimensions. You have a painting by an unlisted artist that is a view in Switzerland. The framing, board on which the image is painted, and the style of the painted image all indicate that this was not painted in 1855. The person who painted it may have used a print image from 1855 to model after the image painted. On today's market, this can sell for as high as $75 - $110.
