Found in Concord, New Hampshire, a small (7" by 6 1/4") watercolor painting of an older man dressed in 19th century garb, smoking a pipe and wearing a hat, holding the hand of a young girl wearing a white sun bonnet on a cobbled lane in historic old Nantucket Town. The piece is titled at lower left "OLD NANTUCKET". The piece is not signed. "Forbes" is written in pencil in an old hand on the reverse. Attempts to link this to a known artist have not been productive. The age would be circa 1885-1890 or close to that in either direction. Given the quality, the artist is almost certainly listed. Condition is excellent. There is a Norwich, Connecticut round blue framer's sticker on the backing board.
