Customer Question
My mum has two...

My mum has two Chinese stone rubbings taken in the 1970. One is a dragon, the other women in a field of flowers. They are both approx 26"x27", in excellent condition, unframed.

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I know the Chinese stopped rubbings in the 1980s, as it was wearing the stone down faster.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

My mum bought them in Los Angeles in the early 1970s. I can send you a couple pcitures, give you an idea of them.

Thoughtful responses take time. My responses are not instantaneous.

Can you send photos?

If so, then -

I do not send pop-up offers.

Please do not try to use the site email method of sending photos without specific instructions from me.
