Object Description

A superbly decorative and rare set of four Chinoiserie wallpaper panels, exquisitely hand-painted with exotic birds and butterflies in the garden, on a pale pink background. 
China, Canton, Qing dynasty, early 19th century.

Why we like them
The exquisite quality of decoration and the miraculous state of preservation for a decorative artwork on paper make these panels a truly rare find. The subtlety of colours, bold yet not garish, lend a ‘noble’ look to the piece.

Each panel measures
Height: 90 in / 227 cm
Width: 22 in / 55 cm

Object History

Such luxurious items were popular in England during the height of fashion for oriental exoticism, called chinoiserie in Europe.

Object Condition

Signs of age and wear to edges, occasional rubbing and touchups to decoration. Mounted on painted wooden frames in early 20th century.
