Dear Paul,

Thank you for the additional images and your patience. Sadly regarding technical problems your case was not displayed in my interface. I apologize for the delay.
The presented object is a painting made in oil paint on canvas with the measurements of 18.5" x 14". the painting depicts a scene in a village with two women carrying water. The painting is signed by the French artist Désiré François LAUGÉE (1823-1896).
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 4.000 to 6.000 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.

With kind regards,
