Circa 1950 44" wide by 41" high (Weighs about 40 pounds.) This is a beautiful print that hung for many years in my Mother''s Chinese living room that we weren''t allowed to walk in. The frame is gold leaf and hand painted with gray decorations around the frame. The bracer bars are gold painted wood with loss of color in many places. The loss of gold gives the feeling of an overall patina in a positive way. The framed Asian lady in the center of the frame is garbed in a hand washed turquoise gown trimmed in gold. She is playing in her treasure box and holds a strand of pearls. She is on a black background and is accented with flowing foliage and bamboo of gold. In my youth I hated this piece but carted it around after my Mother died unwilling to release something that meant so much to her. It came from a high end decorator in Beverly Hills. It recently hung in the master bath of a house I built for clients and it looked fabulous to me. It weighs a lot and will need to be professionally crated and shipped by a great shipper at the buyers expense and arrangement.
