Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. I am very sorry for the delay in your appraisal and thank you for your patience. The item presented appears to be a Chinese scroll painting depicting a Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara in the white-robed manifestation, also known as Baiyi Guanyin. The scroll appears to date to the early-mid 20th century. Unfortunately, I cannot translate the inscription to the lower right. However, these inscriptions are usually short proverbs or poems and the seal is usually an artisan shop or previous collector. These works are typically painted by workshops.
The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of other comparable Chinese scroll paintings featuring similar depictions, taking into consideration size and age. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
