A **PAIR** of circa 1870's watercolors, in non-matching Victorian or turn of the century gold frames, both signed at lower left, one featuring a Florida scene. Details include setting sun, lighthouse, figures, Spanish Moss on snag, palmettos; as such, for its age, a scarce and desirable drawing, signed by a little known artist, Carl H. Schmidt. The watercolor measures 9 1/2" by 13 1/4" (15" by 18 1/2" framed). There is an old Denver, Colorado framing label on reverse. The second work, by the same artist, is of a non-tropical coast, perhaps in the Northeast states. The work itself measures the same, 9 1/2" by 13 1/4" as the Florida scene, though as framed it is larger than the other one, (21" by 24 1/2"). The Florida scene is after a popular Currier and Ives print dating to 1855, known as "The Florida Coast". I would like to keep these together ideally but would consider separating them. Ask for more photos especially of the lovely second watercolor; the allowed nine images doesn't begin to permit me to show the qualities of this pair.
