    IMG_0282_2.jpg IMG_0281.jpg Hello.
    Maybe someone knows where this area in the picture? In the lower right corner there is a monogram by the Cyrillic "gAP 1836". The first letter is uppercase (small). Perhaps the letter "g" refers to an engraver. The pencil drawing is very similar to the esquisse for engraving.

    Hi! I just want to agree, it's a lovely image!! I tried to enhance the signature area, but didn't come u with much more than is visible....Ed Aidl??....the 1836 looks like that to me sometimes and sometimes 1886, but you have the image, so you should be seeing it clearer than me! Sorry I can't help more!

    I can't help either. It does look like a preliminary drawing for a print. My first thought was for transferware.

    It might be fictitious. Has a sort of Neuschwanstein look to it.

    I don't know.

    It is beautiful, could be somewhere along the Rhine river in Germany.

    Looks like E. A. Jr. ?
    Can someone explain what I'm seeing here - what is that claw thing on the front of the boat and is that a mummy lying in the bottom of the boat???

    Another way to check is for 18th & 19th century china decal patterns. They sometimes used fantasy castles on rivers.
