19th century California vintage art signed watercolor of pepper tree leaves

In the style of noted California artist Ellen Burpee Farr, this is a classic late nineteenth century watercolor of the distinctive leaves and "berries" of the pepper tree commonly seen in Southern California. Signed at upper left "A.C. Hough" (or "Haugh"---I don't see a listing for either name), this is a beautiful study that is possibly not finished (the leaves and berries at lower right---could be the artist's intention, or simply unfinished---you judge). It's in original condition, with wavy old glass and a weathered old frame that reflects its age. There's a small horizontal brownish area at lower right center, perhaps old foxing. Measuring 19" by 10" inside the mat (27 1/2" by 18 1/2" as framed), it would command a considerably higher price were it executed by Farr herself. You would likely want to replace the frame, but otherwise this is a really nice piece for your Southwest or California interior. ALLOW FOR REFLECTIONS IN GLASS. .
