'Chinese Mountain Landscape'
This handsome set of woodblock paintings on silk depicts a Chinese landscape with mountain views, streams and small village clusters. They are well signed, but we cannot read the signatures or titles. They are housed in black lacquer pillar frames with ornate metal Chinese 'clover' hangers in a nickel finish, and handsomely framed and bordered in an ivory silk brocade border. The backsides are bordered with lace, a lady's touch. They likely date to c1940. There are some minute brown spots in the silk border on one print. These prints measure 10" x 3.75", the frames are 15.5" x 5.5". P8814 $85.00/Pair
