Chinese Export Bird Watercolours Paintings,
Circa 1800-20

The paintings of exotic birds on branches are in watercolour and gouache on Chinese paper.

One picture depicts a pigeon perched on a tree branch with a landscape background. Chinese calligraphy can be seen in the top right corner. The second picture depicts two courting birds in shades of brown, both perched on a branch, also in a landscape background.

Both paintings framed with a green silk mat and contemporary gilt and dark wood frame.
