Perhaps I can help you,

Can you send a picture of this painting?

Hello I've sent an attachment with this message, I hope this helps.
Expert:  Glenda B. Appraiser replied 2 months ago.

Hello

Thank you for the picture.

The painting looks to be from the early 1900's. The signature is not readable and putting it in a data base with the way you spelled it does not bring up anything. I am sure it is because the artist did not become famous and this is really old. This can be valued for what it is, if you like though.

ok, thank you very much. I imagine it's not worth a lot but a valuation would be good. I've attached another picture of the signature if this helps.Thanks John

I have been an Appraiser for over 45 years. I have also been an Antique shop owner, buying and selling on the current market.
.
The Early 20thC Painting, Framed in Original Frame, has an estimated value on the current market for an average of $250.00-300.00 if sold at an auction(a local auction ) it would sell for a little less,at around $145.00-150.00 , if this were sold in a High End Antique Shop in a larger city it would sell for $300.00 and up depending on the condition. If I were selling it I would list it for $250.00
.
Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
.
You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online. There is Amazon Market Place, and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! All sites can be sold from with pick up only option.
.
If you sell to a dealer, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.
.
