Original watercolor painting dated 1899 and signed "Mc E Dun." Sold unframed with the original mat (wood). The sight area measures 11 ½ by 5 1/8 inches with the overall size, including the outer dimensions of the mat, 17 ½ by 11 ¼ inches. Signed and dated in the lower left corner. An interesting scene featuring what appears to be an early steam powered tugboat moored in a northern harbor ( Alaska? ). A distinctive mountain occupies the background. Based on the geography depicted in the painting, a little research may properly identify the location of this port. In all, this work has a lot of charm and is an excellent example of vintage or antique folk art executed in a folk art or naïve style. Great decorative item for a nautical or ship themed decor. A great inexpensive antique painting.
