CHINESE ANCESTOR PORTRAIT PAINTING. Circa 1890
This Chinese Ancestor Portrait Painting, mounted in an Oak Frame, dates from circa 1890.
The back is covered with sheets from a newspaper dating from 1946 which appears to have been in place since that time and, as a consequence of the painting not having been disturbed there are some marks on the inside of the glass and a small crack to the very top left-hand corner (when viewed from the front).
Overall dimensions of the frame:
Height: 49 inches (124 cm)
Width: 37 inches (94 cm)
