    Default And now for something completely different, maritime art..

    Any art or marine historians out there? Here is a painting for on offer:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Antique-1...UAAOSwnN9bqNue

    If you saw such a thing for sale would you think:

    * Great, an authentic, naive painting from the 19c, good price.

    or

    * Blimey, looks like Beijing 2017 to me.

    A conversation piece only, I am not thinking of investing.

    The smoke from the flue is going a different way to the red ensign, I smell a rat..

    Not seen a paddle steamer with a Dreadnought bow, although I wasn't around at the time!

    Good one, It does look a bit weird. Plus it Just seems a bit too clean for me - at over 120 years old - not that I am any sort of expert :-}

    It’s the sort of thing my mate uses when “dressing” theme pubs, some of the stuff he uses is moulded in plastic, foam backed and the colour printed on. You’d not get anywhere using the Navigation “aids” he sells for seaside pubs, especially the sextants and quadrants.
