    My, what a wee little pipe he has.

    Initials of rather obvious R M are the best I can do.

    I think that’s a hook. He’s got a fishing net. Maybe not. :wacky:

    You are proving my point about his pipe. :hilarious:

    Another in the "old man with pipe" genre but rather sketchily done. Don't think it's terribly old. A photograph of the painting's back and frame would be helpful.

    His pink ear, green hat and cravat, wee pipe, stunted hands ... I suspect this is an amateur artist and can't see any age, quality or value particularly. But then I am so often wrong ...

    It reminds me of the fisherman paintings that I believe have Italian origins.

    Well a search following that tip did result in a plausible explanation for his so-called hat. The ones with these hats seem to be labeled "Neapolitan".
