A rare late 19th Century, hand painted "pillow book" in very good condition for its age. The oriental art expert at Christie's of London translated the title as "Qing Gong Tu" or "Spring Palace Painting". Apparently Spring Palace was often in the title of this sort of Erotica of the period. It is unsigned, but the illustrations are of good quality.
It comprises of 5 double page paintings stuck onto board. There is slight edge staining, but the paintings are very clean and bright. 18.5cm x 9.5cm. I have covered up parts of the paintings that might offend. Please look closely at the photographs as they form an integral part of the description.Please note, we reserve the right to withdraw any items from sale as they are for sale elsewhere.
