Hello

Hi everyone,

I feel rather a fraud being here, but I am a semi retired art dealer with my partner, but we often have paintings of ships and I find it quite difficult to identify them, as artists rarely entitle their work and I haven't been able to find an online source of identification by funnel livery.

I am currently searching for the name or shipping line of a small liner or passenger ship in a watercolour dated 1930. It has two masts and a single funnel, which is red, with a black top, then a white band, then a blue band with something white in the blue band in the centre of the side of the funnel, and then another white band.

Try Googling Funnel markings, I think you will find some info.

It would also be a good idea to add a photo of the painting for members to view.
