    Pair of beautiful Chinese export paintings on pith paper (also called rice paper) depicting court scenes or examples from the lives of wealthy people. The two figures, a standing woman and a seated man, are assisted by their servants. Servants are often portrayed as smaller people.

    The two paintings are framed together in a fairly recent frame. The colors are always fresh and alive, but unfortunately, pith paper is fragile and as expected, here we see the traces of time: the paper is torn, there are gaps, foxing and stains too we find a snack under the woman's chair. I would ask you to pay attention to the photos please and if you have any concerns please contact me. Thank you.

    The approximate dimensions of each painting 21 cmx x 31 cms; the framed dimensions: 35 cms x 47 cms (1603 g).

    Please note:
    Delivery costs only apply to mainland France. Please contact me (I speak English, French and German) for a quote if you live elsewhere.
    If you would like to purchase more than one item, I will always try to combine postage. Again, please contact me - I can reserve the items for you while you wait for a quote.
    Finally, whenever possible, I use recycled packaging. They reduce costs and are better for the planet.
