Italian art Venice watercolor Grand Tour painting circa 1890's

Watercolor on paper, 8 1/4" by 3 7/8", (14 1/4" by 9 1/2" as framed), apparently unsigned, circa late nineteenth century (1890's), showing the famous Piazza San Marco in Venice. This is a highly detailed little painting; note the young lady and her mother at left foreground, feeding the pigeons, and the dapper man at left with his cane and top hat; and the ornate streetlights at right. Most likely this was a piece executed for the tourist souvenir trade, Venice being on the Grand Tour trail. On paper laid on old board, if this was signed on the back, that information would not be accessible. The frame is old and tattered, and mat is the old acidic original, no doubt. The paper is browned but not objectionably. .
