Delightful c.1860 watercolor of an amusing and interesting lanky gentleman dressed in his Sunday's best.
His long hair and bushy beard gives of a clue he was a Mountain Man who struck it rich in the hills with fur trading or gold nugget panning.
And was now looking for a wife playing the part of the sophisticated gentleman.
As an old friend once told me you can put earrings on a hog and it's still a hog.
The painting is signed (Orvelli) and still retains it's original 12 x 15" inch frame.
