Caja de 16 Notecards con sobre.


Painted during the Ming dynasty, with collector marks dating to the 15th century, the work depicted here is an exquisite example of a traditional Chinese scroll-painting genre known as the One Hundred Flowers. This set contains horizontal-format cards decorated with four detail views from the scroll, each with a variety of blossoms: rose, chrysanthemum, morning glory, and balsam; St. John's wort, peony, and poppy; narcissus and chrysanthemum; and rose, peach, and daphne. These long notecards (9 1/4 x 4 inches, opening to 9 1/4 x 8 inches) offer a unique format for sending lengthy sentences, landscape sketches, or panoramic photos. They are presented with white envelopes in a colorfully printed keepsake box that makes an excellent place to store pencils and paintbrushes.
