All auctions will end on the evening of Monday 5th October (uk time). A Pair of Fine Qaulity Antique Chinese Paintings on Rice Paper. Beautifully painted throughout, depicting a high-ranking couple in formal dress, each with their doting attendant.The gentleman, with robe, fur over-jacket and mandarin hat with final, smoking from a pipe which has just been lit for him. On his table, precious objects including a bronze censor and blue-glazed vase. The lady, with peaceful expression and wearing a formal dragon robe, holding a pale jade cup and being offered a textile by attendant. Her table with vase and a box mirror. Written in pencil to the backing board, it is noted these pictures were given as wedding presents in 1913.
Each well-presented behind a turquoise coloured silk mount and framed and glazed, ready to hang. 17 x 24 cms (approx). Overall, including the frames: 29.5 x 36.5 cms (approx).
Both in good order for age and displaying well. There is some overall discolouration (the backgrounds are a little darkened, as shown) but pretty acceptable. The painting with the gentleman has a small rip to the left margin (just in line with the table), barely noticeable. The painting with the lady has a small blemish to the lower right margin, again barely noticeable. Minor marks consistent with age.Overall the paintings are very smart and presentable.
