American 1896 watercolor hunting dogs signed with monogram possibly by JAMES DAVID SMILLIE (1833-1909)

Watercolor on paper of two spaniels, the hunter nearby in a wooded landscape, " by ", unframed, signed at lower left with monogram that resembles the monogram of noted American artist JAMES DAVID SMILLIE (1833-1909). This is obviously an American work, not European, but I cannot confirm that it's by the noted American artist James David Smillie. I researched the monogram and see the clear resemblance to that of Smillie. Regardless of authorship, this is a fine late 19th century drawing and should find a collector who will appreciate the hunting subject matter. This is unframed, hinged only at top. It is matted. Condition is generally good with a few areas of abrasion and possible oxidation; they show as tan/brown areas in the extreme closeup photos. Email me for more images of these areas. I would recommend framing this item; immediately it will become more attractive. See the net for images of Smillie's work. .
