Super framed and glazed mid 19th century chinese painting on rice/pith paper. The frame is modern giltwood faux bamboo.
As so often with rice paper painings there are some small areas of damage as shown in the photos though this is not noticeable from a distance and it displays very well. The colour of the mount suits the colour of the flower and butterflies very well.
