Images on Flowers in other forms of art

fan 2

These Flowers come from a lovely, though strangely colored Mahjong set. We don't know if the set was intended to be this color or if the color changed over time. The backs of the tiles are black, and there is no wafer back.

We have seen many of these ladies before, and these images were very familiar to the artists in China and the people buying the sets.

Once again, a beautiful porcelain piece offered by Ralph M. Chait Galleries, Ltd, on display at the Winter Antiques Show.

Here both ladies hold fans. We also see the wall in the background, as we so often see on Flower tiles.
