A good quality Chinese painting on pith paper, dating from the Nineteenth century. The painting shows an interior scene with a man seated on a chair wearing an elaborate court costume, with a table next to him with a vase of flowers. His attendant is standing next to him, carrying a lacquer box. The man's hat is identifiable as a summer court hat of a high-ranking official, with a peacock feather attached. There is an elaborately-patterned carpet on the floor. Size including frame 23.5 x 35cm (9.3" x 13.8")
