    I found this painting and it has the old style "a portrait recovered from a shipwreck" name in yellow on top and wondered if it was the lady in red thats worth some money... if it is, how much is the lady in red worth?

    I'm also pretty positive that the "Lady in Red" is NOT a 'shipwreck' of any kind. Either old title in yellow, or white underneath. It will simply say "Portrait". I've seen probably 2 of these in all my UO life, both at museums naturally. One of them I think is at Orc's on GL. Can't remember the other.

    :lame::lame::lame::grrr:I've never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight
    I've never seen you shine so bright
    I've never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance
    They're looking for a little romance, given half a chance
    I have never seen that dress you're wearing
    Or the highlights in your head that catch your eyes I have been blind
    The lady in red is dancing with me cheek to cheek
    There's nobody here, it's just you and me, It's where I wanna be
    But I hardly know this beauty by my side
    I'll never for get, the way you look tonight

    I've never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight
    I've never seen you shine so bright you were amazing
    I've never seen so many people want to be there by your side
    And when you turned to me and smiled, It took my breath away
    I have never had such a feeling
    Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight

    The way you look tonight
    I never will forget, the way you look tonight
    The lady in red
    The lady in red
    The lady in red
    My lady in red (I love you.) :lame::lame::lame::grrr:

    I ****ING HATE CHRIS DE BURGH!!!!!

    Don't listen to Manticore, on the value.

    The fact that it's the old style tag makes it worth more to collectors than a normal shipwreck painting, turned or not.

    And I've never sold the paintings that size (with the current shipwreck tag) for less than 100GP, and sell every one I get (though it might take a week or two).

    Wow, I get to correct Manticore.

    You turn the lady in blue to get the lady in red. not the green.

    Personally, I prefer "Don't Pay The Ferryman" - it's more appropriate to UO, anyway...
