This is an exceptional oil painting, in so many ways; one, it's huge. This is one of those paintings that requires just the right place to hang, and also requires that "just the right place" be a large space. Two; this is historically significant. Sir Charles Marsh Schomberg (1779-1835), was a British Royal Navy Captain in the Napoleonic wars, and the French Revolutionary wars among many others, and was the Commodore and Commander-in-Chief at the Cape of Good Hope. He had a long and distinguished career, was in charge of 10 ships, served in 8 major battles or wars, achieved 4 of the most prestigious awards available, and later in life served as the Lieutenant Governor of Dominica. By all accounts, he was an exceptional officer, highly regarded by both peers and troops alike.

Some facts:

This painting is, as best I can tell, unsigned. It was professionally cleaned and restored in 2011, and any hopes of a signature turning up were dashed. The first three photos show great detail, but the fourth photo, which isn't so clear is actually the correct color. I guess you either get clarity or color with my camera!

The painting was re-stretched in the 1960s. 

The wood/plaster/gilt frame is original, in wonderful condition for its age, and very beautiful.

The medal on Captain Sir Charles' chest is The Order of the Crescent, one of the four degrees of knighthood. His uniform is that of an early 1800s Post Captain of the British Royal Navy; this uniform style was retired around 1812.

This painting has been in my family for many generations, is part of my mother's estate, and must be sold, much to my dismay.

Unsure of artist; unsigned.

No real damage anywhere that I can see—amazing for a 200-year-old + painting! There is some very minor flaking to the gilt plaster frame, and some "bubbling" (for lack of a better term) on parts of the surface of the painting itself, potentially indicating this painting survived a fire. See photos.

34 3/4" tall x 30 1/4" wide x 2" deep.
