A Run of 9 Monumental Antique Oriental Wall Paintings / Wall Coverings. Genuine late 19th Century wall paper paintings / wall coverings, a. Ll featuring White and Manchurian Cranes set within extensive landscapes. (Owned by a leading British aristocratic family for 100+ years and recently removed from a highly celebrated English mansion where they were in situ since their import into the UK in 1890’s). Aged throughout and with some damage and faults but with a faded decadence / majesty and offering multiple forward-use potential for those with imagination. The paintings could be admired as is, or, slightly cropped down to remove the worst of the peripheral wear and tear. Alternatively (and perhaps more realistically) a great number of smaller works could be obtained, by framing individual birds or flocks of birds, and so creating a considerable run of more modest sized images. These are an Asian / Oriental Interior decorator’s dream come true and in the right interior could bring a wonderful, atmospheric sense of faded, yet still decadent, late Dynastic China. 40+ photos available upon request. Each panel measures approximately 110cms wide x 260 cms high ie 7.2 ft!! All with some fading and discolouration throughout. Wear, marking and blemishes. Peripheral areas and edges with some damage in places, including some rips, tears etc this damage not to all, and mainly though not exclusively, confined to the margins. And in a few cases, some water staining encroaching 10 or so inches into the scene. Bird lime spotting to a few. Despite the above, there is much scope to produce something very special. Arrived on time and as described. If I could leave a million stars, I would. SUPERB: accurately described, well packed and sent quickly – highly recommended! IF THERE WAS A SCORE HIGHER THAN 5 STARS THIS EBAYER WOULD DESERVE IT A++++. Superb communication, very honest and helpful. Many thanks for looking!
