Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. My sincere apologies for the delay with the apprisal.
The presented object appears to be watercolor on paper with unknown measurements. The drawing depicts two childer and writing named the artist John PARTRIDGE (1790-1872). This drawing is not comparable in the style and the quality of the depiction of artworks by John PARTRIDGE (1790-1872). This means this drawing was made after an painting or artwork of John PARTRIDGE (1790-1872) by an unknown artist.
Works by this artist were recently offered and sold on the international auction market.
This piece is in bad condition and there is serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 0 to 40 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,
