What does this mean?

Hello again Jonathan.

This item appears to be a gouache painting rather than a print. However, it may be a woodblock. If you are able to remove the item from the frame and examine it further, we may be able to better identify the item.

I do not see any signature or publishing information, which may be hidden under the frame, as well. If you decide to remove the item from the frame, please let me know if you find anything. Without artist attribution, it is difficult to provide a narrow estimation. Therefore, I am only able to provide a general valuation.

The scene depicts an Asian genre scene of a salt harvest with snow capped mountains in the background. Based on the Asian conical hats in the scene, I believe the scene is Vietnamese or Chinese. The work appears to date to the 1900s - 1940s based on the amount of foxing and other condition issues.

The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates of similar genre scene paintings without artist attribution, dating to the early - mid 20th century. Again, please let me know if you unearth any findings under the frame. Thank you.

Hello Jonathan. The estimate provided is based on the item being a painting, not a print. The $30 - 200 range covers many genre scenes, all of which are not attributed to a specific artist. The range provided is the narrowest estimate possible with the information the item provides.

You think this is a Gouache Painting? :-)

Hi Jonathan,
Without an in-person examination, it is can be difficult to determine mediums or material. Based on the images upload, it does appear to be a gouache, watercolor, or ink painting.
