Thanks for looking through Googleimages.  Any consensus on the artist ?  Heimann J died in Breslau, 
No signature. The frame has been taken off.
My questions are  more about why and where and when was this painting done; who is the person;  was the hat a sign of wealth; or  position in the community; what fur is it made of  ?  Was this portrait commissioned to mark a special birthday ?  For his 70th birthday, his 7 children gave him  a silver tree with their names engraved on it.
