You are absolutely correct about the frame. This is not the original frame and I was too young back then to remember what it looked like when it was at my grandfather's and displayed at his home before he passed and gave to my father. This frame, I believe, is something from my parents. My mother has Alzheimer's so I don't think she would be able to give me an answer or remember and my Dad just recently passed. I have sent a message to my aunt, one of my Dad's sister's who is still living, if she can tell me about it. I have a box of pictures I am going through to see if the painting is visible in any of the pics taken at my grandfather's house before he passed. My dad's mom passed at a fairly early age, 55, so it really limits me to see if I can find out more. The stumpler in all of this is one of the tags at the back that has Charles Roberson and the address in England. I searched and found that many well known artists of the day and bought painting supplies from his business. They were known for their paints, etc. now apparently the books they kept for sales survived so that would be one avenue for me to continue searching.
