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
