19th Century Chinese Reverse Glass Painting
This is a beautiful example of 19th century Chinese Reverse Glass Painting. It depicts a mother and child being observed by an elder. The colors are vivid and the details are well rendered. The contrasting hardwoods of the frame make the painting stand out even more. It measures approximately 28" x 21".
Signs of age and wear are present on the frame and to small degree on the painting. There are 2 small areas on the edge where the paint has been scraped or worn. These areas are shown in the pictures and outlined in red. The frame is old, as is the painting, and has signs of age and wear. Those areas are also shown in the pictures. The brass fixture shows signs of age as well.
