I was given this beautiful oil painting but can't make out the signature.  Any help I can get regarding the name of the artist and perhaps a value would be appreciated.  Thank you Annette

Dear Annette,

It is a beautiful painting. I am unable to read the signature, but I think I keep seeing something like "Charles Duffeldorf?" Either way I would consider it a German name and that may give additional options for continuing your search. Without additional information as to it's history and possible age I cannot do more research. If it has information on the back of the painting or if you have particular knowledge on its history let me know and I will consider how it may fit in identification on the painting.

Best regards,

Fine Art
