This is from the time of British India The Crown Jewel! , dated 1932, inscribed Ajmere (an alternative spelling of the city of Ajmer) and signed illegibly in pencil lower middle. I may not be able to break the signature but I know good art when I see it. I would not be surprised if this is a real gem. It is not every day that I get art from Rajasthan state in NW India, especially this quality!It is framed, art is 42x32cm (16.5x12.6"), overall 77x57 (30.25x22.2"). Has not been examined out of the frame. I do a fair bit of research before I attribute an item? Based on signature, technique, style, age, etc? Provenance/certificate of authenticity will be mentioned in the description, if any. If an item is listed as? It means this is what I see and I have not done any research, usually because of lack of time. There is a difference between originality and authenticity. An item may be original but not authentic and vice versa. Items framed and under glass have not been examined out of the frame unless otherwise stated. Oil/acrylic: I use the general term "oil" unless specifically stated otherwise. I use the general term watercolo. R on all water based paints/dyes/pigments. Most items are pre-owned so expect normal wear and a need to clean the item. Anything major will be noted. Sizes are fairly accurate but consider them as approximate.
