Thank you for your comment, Erin.
I'm sorry to tell you that the objects in the Historic New England collection are not for sale. This painting is not signed, so it is not known who painted it or if there are other copies.
I hope you can find a similar one to fit your needs.
Sincerely,
Nicole Chalfant
