    I found these beautiful reverse painted on glass paintings at a local thrift store yesterday - the actual painted glass measure 26" x 17.5"
    I can't find a signature on either one.
    Also they have a sticker that says Made in People's republic of China
    What time are these from (the frames look old)?
    Are they just factory art since they don't have signatures?
    Any info would be appreciated.

    Lovely, journey.
    It would. These are an old favourite and are still being made. The themes are copied from traditional ones, so no siggy

    And I will say that the mortise type of construction in the frames are typical of 20th century frames - you rarely see a piece of Chinese furniture with screws or nails. If we had ever had any Chinese furniture with either, we knew it was poorly made or 're-purposed'.

    Thanks all. One unusual thing I notices - on mine there are 2 tabs(?) on backs that slide into small slits yn frame, with the rest of the back closing with the traditional pegs you push into the frame to keep it in place.
    has anyone see the backing with the top (or bottom) having 2 tabe & the rest being the push in pieces?
