Hi and thank you forgive me I have not been able to get online until now. Thank you for these photos. I see you have researched the artist so I will help you with the values and list a few auctions that handle his works. Being an appraiser I appraise and value items I have no control on the sell of items.

These two paintings are his paintings. They are nicely framed and appear to be in great condition. The value on these in today's market compared to his comparable pieces are(###) ###-####00 They could sell for more or not even sell at an auction house. Auction houses depend on who attends and is looking for his pieces.

Alfred Montague 1832 - 1883

The following auction houses sold his paintings within this year. The last two listed sold for the higher end 1200-1500
