I found a Karl Ernst (1866-1950) on this website (https://second.wiki/wiki/sohlern_adelsgeschlecht) who was a Baron Sohlern and noted to be a landscape painter but there is no listed artist by that name and no mention of still life painting or examples of his works so I did not put that in the appraisal as it's a bit of a shot in the dark.
The value is based on its relation to other works of comparable size, age, quality and subject matter.
Happy to answer any other questions you might have.
Do you haven to have any additional information about the artist? I'm intrigued by the high value of this painting.
