Dear Jose,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. So that I may best assist you, can you please upload a few better images (such as close-ups of the painting). Is there a signature anywhere?

Dear Jose,

Thank you for replying to us so quickly.

After close inspection, the appraised item appears to be a copy of an original oil painting by Margaret Dovaston (1884-1955) entitled "A good song". Your work is slightly smaller than the original painting, which measures (unframed) 20" h x 16" w. For your information, the original painting was sold in 2013 by Christie's, London:

The value of this copy is between $200 and $300. This is based on comparable of these last five years.

Best wishes,
