Oil on Tin portrait of a Young Gentleman signed C. Moller and dated 1845. Measures approximately 6 1/4" x 7". Signed on the lower right edge "C. Moller 1845" ; hard to see, but there. Painted on tin with paper affixed to back, German inscription detailing sitter's name, Wilhelm Bergmann, age 30, and Bernburg 1845. Notice his right arm over the chair back holds a cigar, and his left hand has a ring on his index finger. Could benefit from a cleaning and restoration to the finish--this painting is 170+ years old, so it needs some TLC. Unframed. Traces of tape on the back from insertion in several frames over the years. Wonderful detail to the young man's face. Well dressed, he sports a watch chain on his vest if you look carefully.
