Almost square hand-made embroidery. On a background of green satin silk two lion dogs, or foo dogs, are playing with a ball and each other between peonies and other flowers, next to a rock formation, a bat in the upper right corner. They are embroidered by hand with bright colors of silk in straight stiches and looped stiches, the lions detailed and outlined with gold-thread, which are twisted silk threads wrapped in thin gold foil.

The image is framed with a wool woven band with geometric motifs and framed by a border of silk brocade. The back is covered with thin cloth that is woven with green silk warp and gold thread weave, giving it a golden sheen.

China, late Qing dynasty, late 19th century

H 16 x W 14.4 in.

Few tiny insect holes in the brocade. All in all, excellent condition

Page from an album. Illustration in Chinese style (chinoiserie) of a bearded young Chinese man in a long blue garment and round hat in vogue in the Qing dynasty. In his left hands he holds an open fan with tortoise shell spokes, in his right a red cloth in the other.

The shades on his clothes and face done in tiny black dots, in imitation of shading in an etching. Black ink and watercolors on Western paper. French or English. Early 19th century.

The style of this watercolor reminds of the small Chinese paintings on rice paper (sometimes referred to as pith paper) or extremely fine silk, done in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Measurements of watercolor: 15.75 x 12 inches (40.3 x 30.3 cm).

Basically in very good condition, fresh colors: left margin with binding holes and slightly folded, center fold, few thin areas, mounted at upper margin (traces of glue bleeding to front) in a mat

This probably is an illustration from an early 19th century book on crime and punishment in Qing dynasty China.
