Antique Chinese Painting - Woman in Waiting

  • Sale
  • Regular price $0.01


Antique Chinese painting on silk or paper depicting 4 women in ancient wardrobes. 
Framed in a gilt wood frame behind glass.
We love the images of two women up in a balcony watching the women in the lower room. Perhaps a Chinese royal family? The colors are still bright with slight fading. 
We purchased this piece from collectors of Asian art and decor. The owner's traveled Asia extensively and brought back many artifacts and art.

Minor wear to frame such as some gilt paint loss on sides. The painting is behind mat and has evidence of light foxing or staining along the edge of the painting/fabric and mat. There appears to be a darker area of the mat on the upper right corner (behind the glass.)
We have not located a signature.
Pardon the light reflections in the photography.

We have not removed the painting from the frame. The painting is believed to be early 19th century or earlier however age and provenance is unknown. The frame is likely mid century. 

Frame 14.5" W x 17.5" W
