The image size of each is 9 x 7 inches, edition of 75, c. 1940s, pencil signed and numbered, in matching Asian styled period gilt frames, likely the originals. Elyse Lord lived her entire life in Britain and although her work shows a strong Asian influence, she never actually traveled the continent.
