What does this mean?

Hi Melinda,

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.
Based on the photos and information provided, and subject to examination, this is:

Manner of / attributed to Paul Charles Chocarne-Moreau (French, 1855-1931)
Untitled scene of altar boys at play
oil on wood,
panel 8 3/4 by 10 3/4 inches, in a giltwood frame 14 by 16 inches
CONDITION: appears to be in good condition
PROVENANCE: previously with Gumps, San Francisco, CA
*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 again for using Mearto.
