Age & origin silk pic of tori gate & deer 2012/9/22 04:28
I have inherited a silk picture of the tori gate with water deer. Sealed edges suggest it is off a roll or weaving frame. Colours faded to shades of grey. Some yellowing may be from household smoke over the years. In family's possession over 50 years. Size approx 500 x 600. Silvered & gesso wood frame. If gate rebuilt 1875, what is age and origin of this picture? An ancester used to travel to far east between 1900 and 1917.

Providing a photo would probably help.

I am afraid I cannot seem to copy and paste a photo onto this message. Perhaps a direct e-mail would work. TT
