Set of six 19th century Chinese paintings on delicate pith paper, also known as rice paper, made from thin sheets of the evergreen shrub Tetrapanax papyrusiferum, a South Asian plant. The subjects of the paintings include personal grooming like pedicure and barbering; playing a traditional musical instrument; and market scenes involving selling fish or meat. The works are very old, likely last quarter of the nineteenth century, and most all of them have some condition issues, including paper discoloration/browning, some tears, and edge losses; and in one example, some larger missing areas in the corners. Please study all the images carefully. Measurements are 7" by 5" plus the narrow black wood simple frame. An old Phoenix framer's sticker suggests that these were framed in the 1950's or 1960's at latest.
