19th Century Watercolor of Four Prussian Officers

$165.00 USD

This wonderfully colorful watercolor depicts four Russian officers in stylish uniforms.  It measures 7 5/16" wide by 8 1/8" tall (4 1/2" by 5" sight).

The following provenance is attached to the back of the frame:

"American watercolor of Prussian Officers c. 1845-52 attributed to Charles Shoettel, NYC.  Found in the album of Charles Shoettel (album bound by John Walker, Book Binder, Corner of Walker and Eldridge Sts, NYC).  The album descended in the family of John D. Ottiwell, who served in the 7th regiment of the NYC volunteers & was a delegate to the 1868 Republican Convention.  The album remained in that family until April 2002."

The print carries the title (lower right) "Russian Officers."

The watercolor is in excellent condition, in an early frame.  The frame backing material needs to be replaced but has been left as-is to preserve the attached provenance.

An estimated $15 is included in the price to cover packing, shipping and insurance.
