Please read this letter before you scroll down and be sure to read and understand my descriptions of the paintings that I list on BEFORE YOU offer
First of all, these paintings are mostly between 100 and 300 years old.
They have come directly or indirectly from the walls of Old English Country Houses and Stately Homes andeven Castles.
I describe their condition honestly and mention all defects in the paintings and the frames. I use the same terms of description as used by the top 3 sale houses.
If you want something that looks new and in a perfect new frame there are plenty of reproduction paintings on in brand new frames so I suggest this will be more suitable for you.
Should you have a deep pocket, I suggest that you buy at a leading Art Gallery and pay retail price for a fully restored painting costing many TENS OF THOUSANDS of £££’s or $$$’s
What I offer are once in a lifetime buying opportunities.
Within a few years from now there will be fewer old paintings available.
So buy now while I am still sourcing fine works of art.
Some of my regular buyers are art dealers and galleries.

Attributed to; Lai Fong of Calcutta
Lai Fong is one of the few Chinese port painters to be identified. This work has been attributed to this artist based on it’s style of presentation and the familiar detail of the vessel.
Over time, and especially in the last decade, the value of these "China Trade" paintings have shown a very strong and consistent response in the marine art market. There are several factors contributing to the success of these important paintings. The first is the fine esthetic qualities that the works possess, a traditional portrait style colored with the romance of the era. Another consideration reflects the consistent attention that these paintings have garnered with international collectors both of both marine and oriental genres.

Paintings from the China Trade
Beginning in the late 1700s, an increasing number of international merchant vessels began bringing back to their respective ports cargos of exotic objects from China which found ready markets in America and Europe. An insatiable interest in things oriental resulted in a range of exquisite objects created by Chinese artisans specifically for the western markets.
Among the items that filled the holds of the sailing ships were furniture, silk embroideries, lacquerware, carvings, fans, and a fascinating variety of paintings. These paintings offered first hand documentation of the ships that plied the Far East Trade and the exotic ports they visited.
These early ‘China Trade’ paintings are considered to be some of the finest harbor views and ship portraits ever produced. They usually have no signatures or labels and offer little or no indication of who the artist was. Only a score or so names from the period are even known and these may be positively identified with only a very few paintings.
This is a very speculative item with a stunning and dramatic impact.
A wonderful original masterpiece in distressed condition as seen in the images and needs some restoration to make perfect although in my opinion it could be hung inits existingcondition.
