Stone Rubbing on handmade rice paper SR-6
My Mother in Law, she bought it at a thirft store,
Thank you for your appraisal inquiry with Mearto. The item presented appears to be a stone rubbing on rice paper by Ting Chou-Fong (Chinese, 20th century), executed in 1974. The label to the verso titles the image as "Procession of Musicians" and notes the rubbing was taken from the 6th century Tung Hsien in the Honan province of China.
Ting's prints are usually hand-colored with wax pigment. However, it appears the item presented is not embellished or has lost its pigment. The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of comparable relief prints (embellished and not embellished) by Ting Chou-Fong. All of these comparables feature the red seal to the lower corner and a label to the verso. Please note that asking or retail prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
