What does this mean?

Hello again Jim,

Thank you for contacting Mearto and for your patience.

This is also a Chinese painting on silk with a calligraphic poem. The red seal is the mark of the artist or collector, but it is unidentifiable. I cannot give you an accurate date of the painting, but the vividness of the colors suggests to me that it is no older than the 19th century (late Qing), as your other painting.

For Chinese silk paintings of this size and type, without known artists, prices can vary. Very good condition and framed.

Based on sales of other paintings like this one, the Fair Market Value is between $400 and $600.

Unfortunately I my camera is low quality as far as close up shots. I would be happy simply knowing the origin and age of the piece, if you are able determine that from my poor pictures.

thanks, Jim

This is a new acquisition and I don't have the knowledge to research it further. I just intend to hang it in my office.

thanks, Jim

Note that what appears to be discoloration are glass reflections in my photo.
