Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
I agree that this is very similar to the work of PC Chocarne Moreau and have valued it as manner of/attributed to him. If you find a signature under the frame (I'm not suggesting you do this, only a professional framer), let me know, it might upgrade the value slightly.
