Packing Tea:

Description
This late 18th century print showing the process behind the marketing of tea, would have brought a totally new perspective to the tea drinkers of the western world, perhaps educating them a little as to the origins of their popular afternoon drink. Japanese prints became very collectable in the West in the late 19th century, bringing with them as they did an intriguing new glimpse of a completely unfamiliar world. The stylization of natural forms, and the strong outlines and bold, flat colours, also had a profound effect on western art.

A PAIR OF 19TH CENTURY CHINESE GLASS PAINTINGS
A pair of mid 19th century Chinese export glass paintings depicting genre scenes with figures in an interior which opens on to a garden. Many of the figures and motifs can be seen mirrored between the paintings with slight detail differences.
Mirror and glass pictures were made in China for export to Europe from the middle of the 17th century. It was universally recognised that the technique of back painting required great skill. Typically, subjects featured fell into four groups: still-lifes of flowers, trees, utensils and birds, figural groups or single figures often by a river or in domestic settings, Chinese scenes with Chinese figures and also European scenes or portraits.
The majority of Chinese glass paintings are anonymous. None have been recorded with a signature and only one or two early 18th century examples have been found to bear their maker's labels on the back. Frames for Chinese glass paintings varied from simple oriental hardwood and lacquered softwood frames to more elaborate European-made carved giltwood examples.
