Vintage Chinese round framed traditional silk painting of maiden in garden
Beautiful delicately hand painted picture of a young Chinese maiden, her head downward glancing in a bashful way - she is in a pink, white and gold silk brocade traditional dress with a red ribbon (her hair ribbon matches!) with her pretty blue fan and long pearl drop earrings with a jade drop at the end. She is standing by a red fence near bamboo and banana leaves. The background is a dull gold colour. Is she waiting in the garden for her suitor for a secret tryst? Her rosy cheeks may give it away! Signed and stamped by the artist.
This beauty is framed behind glass with an embossed floral cream silk matte with big traditional Chinese style brass hanger at the top. The frame is wood, gilded then painted in black. It is in very good condition - the non reflective glass is clear, painting is clear, there are patches of yellowing from age on the cream brocade matt and the black frame has chipped here and there to reveal the underlying gilt - which adds a delightful touch!
It is 32cm (12 5/8") in diameter
