Unframed measuring 26.5x21.5” Seems to be an original watercolor of a pheasant or quail and a tree
Eau Claire, Wisconsin
Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. The apprised object appears to be a drawing on paper with the measurements of 26.5x21.5”. The drawing was made as a watercolor and depicts a bird of the family of the Phasianidae. The drawing was signed by the artist Charles Murphy, (American, 20th Century). He also published many prints so there is a danger that this piece is also a print. Usually, the prints have a copyright sign beside the signature. If it is a print the estimate would be around 20 to 40 USD.
This piece is in good condition and there are no serious damages visible.
An estimation would be between 300 to 600 USD.
This estimation is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparables. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and vary.
With best regards,
