Chinese papercuts-3

 

I acquired these papercuts sometime in the late 1950s - there are more than 20 in a nice box.  Apparently they are from Yangchow in Kiangsu Province, and are done with scissors by professional artists.

They must be quite fragile...
Tom Wilson: They are firmly pasted on to black card, otherwise they would certainly be easy to damage!
Amazing things Tom.
Tom Wilson: Amazing - especially when the accompanying leaflet tells you that these are cut from memory without using a pattern!

Human ingenuity and skill always amazes me Tom.
Tom Wilson: It seems to have few limits!
I'm assuming no two will ever be quite the same Tom.
Tom Wilson: I think that is probably very true, Brian.
I would think they have appreciated in value over the years Tom
Tom Wilson: Well, they came free, so anything would be an improvement smile
