Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.
The presented object appears to be a painting made in oil paint on canvas with the measurements of 26 x 32 inches. The painting depicts a maritime scene with ships in a stormy sea. The painting is signed with the name "R. Blum". This painting is not related to the quality of the depiction, the style, and the signature with the work of the artist Robert Frederick BLUM (1857-1903). This painting was made by a not academical educated artist with the name Blum in the first half of the 20th century.
Works by this artist were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 80 to 180 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.
With kind regards,
