I purchased this neglected but beautiful painting at an estate sale.  I'm trying to determine if it's valuable enough to stabilize and restore.  Is there any information you could share to help me?  I'd also appreciate any referral you may know in the Charlotte area if the painting is worth restoring. It measures 23" x 19.5" and is oil on canvas.

Walter Douglas is a New Jersey known as an Animal and wildlife painter. This is a beautiful painting that will only get better with restoration. I don't know anyone in the Charlotte area. The closest would be Atlanta. The replacement value of this painting is $1,500-$1,700.
Thank You, Joe.
