Beautiful antique Asian silk painting depicting a crow/raven sitting on a perch above a boat sat in a bed of reeds. Believed to date from the 19th Century, the picture has a wood frame backing which has come detached from the front. The rear of the frame shows remnants of an Asian newspaper (appears to be Chinese or Japanese), further covered by a decorative silk cloth. Has some signs of wear on the surface of the picture and is in need of being framed to protect the picture from further damage. A rare survivor.
