This Frame has Bronze or Brass and not Gilt wood as decoration, and the decor are Ears of Corn. This Frame was a quite expensive Frame having a Gold Border of embossed Corn Cobs and in each corner on the right side and the Left side what appears to be Epaulets Heavy Gold Eastlake Design please take your time with the pictures. You can see Napoleon is cut or bleeding on his head and there is a line of Napoleons Blood on his Horses Neck.THIS IS A Really great Drawing save for the Moisture Stain in the Sky which will be no more. I will pay to get this Fabulous drawing restored for the new owner and then what comes out from a 6500.00 Watercolor will be a Painting fit for any Museum or Fine assemblage of Historical Paintings or drawings for anyones Estate collection. Everything I sell is used, and often is quite old. In many of the cases there. Will be damage of some kind, and usually some form of restoration and repair.
This is especially true of relined canvas Paintings This is considered normal with old Art & Antiques. I will attempt to mention significant problems, and always include excellent photographs. You should rely upon your inspection of the photographs. No representations are implied about mounts and frames, unless specifically stated, and then they are just my opinion.
Authorship/Authenticity is similarly a matter of opinion. In the absence of a provenance, even a signed picture may be a forgery. Unless I have reason to suspect a forgery, which I will then mention, please assume that authorship is a matter of opinion. The exception would be if I say "guaranteed genuine" or by the hand of the Artist listed.
