What does this mean?

Good morning, Jonathan,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. I'm having difficulty making out the signature in the lower right corner of the front, as well as the inscription on the back - what do they look like to you?

Thanks!
Delia

I have it for sale on eBay for $500.00

Good morning, Jonathan,
$300-500 is more in line for what unattributed marine pictures of this size and age are bringing at auction. But if you can get $500 you'll have done well!

I would catalog it as follows:

European School, 19th Century
Painting of ships at sea
oil on canvas
signed indistinctly lower right
12 inches high by 17 1/2 inches wide
CONDITION: a few small areas of paint loss, primarily in the lower left and center right.
PROVENANCE: acquired at an estate sale
$300-500*
*represents a fair-market value for auction purposes; retail or asking price may vary.

Please let us know if you have additional items to appraise, and thank you for using Mearto.
