Buddha and the Beast...and a Beauty

Carlo watercolor subjects of the Asian persuasion are easy to find, affordable, and usually have more detail in the background than other subjects. On this set a gold metallic paint was used for detail on the dragon and cherry blossoms, metallic paints are rare for Carlos work. Many would say the actual art of Carlo is a novelty in comparison to the frames. This pair of trapezoid frames are very well grained and detailed. Frames like these are becoming harder to find as more people paint the frames to freshen them up instead of refinishing them which can become a very lengthy process. This set was listed for $1200 and eventually the price was dropped considerably.

I would value this set from $350-$550 depending on the market
