Fantastic 19th C. American Clipper Ship Oil Painting

This is a large oil on canvas, dated 1894, Maritime painting of an American Clipper ship, in full sail. Signed by listed artist H.L. Severance, this painting is in wonderful condition. Cleaned and relined in Vermont by top art restoration specialist Joseph J. Marotta Co., Inc. Originally sold by "The Old Picture Store" in Boston, Massachusetts, the original tags are all in place. I will be happy to send lots of additional photos, as requested. The painting measures approximately 24" by 19", not counting the vintage frame that is in place. Although not antique, this frame is quite appropriate and of very high quality. The artist signature is in the bottom right hand corner. The Clipper ship flies numerous nautical flags, including the American flag, as shown in my photos. This large 19th century American painting is 27" by 22" framed and would make a stunning statement in any room! $575 + shipping
