The scroll mount is original, has its ivry ends, the outside silk covered protector is loose from its attachment and should/could be re attached.

From Wikipedia: "Shunga is a Japanese term for erotic art. reaching its height in the Edo period (1603 to 1867). Most shunga are a type of ukiyo-e, usually executed in woodblock print format. While rare, there exist erotic painted and horizontally mounted handscrolls which predate the Ukiyo-e movement." After the Imperial edicts of 1661 and 1722, further attempts to prevent the production of shunga were made with the Kansei Reforms in the 1790's.Artist's production of shunga simply went 'underground' for some decades. -Peter Webb reported that while engaged in research for a 1975 publication, he was initially informed that no relevant material existed in the British Museum, and when finally allowed access to it, he was told that it "could not possibly be exhibited to the public" and had not been catalogued. In 2014 he revisited the museum, which had an exhibition entirely of shunga "proudly displayed"- "Shunga was also produced in hand scroll format, called kakemono-e This format was also popular, though more expensive as the scrolls had to be individually painted. This led to the appearance of shunga by first-rate artists, such as the ukiyo-e painter perhaps best known in the Western world, Hokusai. The best Ukiyo-e artists owed a stable livelihood to such customs, and producing a piece of shunga for a high-ranking client could bring them sufficient funds to live on for about six months. Shunga produced in Edo, (Tokyo) tended to be more richly coloured than those produced in Kyoto and Osaka. This also translates into a greater amount of background detail in Edo Shunga. After 1722 most artists refrained from signing shunga works.
Lot #91: High quality Chinese 19th century, Ching Dynasty ink wash and watercolor painting. An elder Taoist priest reading a tablet in a landscape.

Lot 94: Large impressionist o/c by highly acclaimed Irish born artist, Philip Moysey, 1912-1991. "Old man in an Irish pub", dating about 1950. We assume he stayed and painted in Ireland, as his impressive auction records are from mostly Sotheby's and Christie's in London and best Irish auction firms. This painting is much bigger than most, rather grand compared to others and of similar subject. 20 x 30" with good frame, the painting is in perfect, untouched and original condition.

Impressive at 25" high and 30" around the middle, weighs about 50 lbs, actual big claws on its feet, hands seemingly human and its face seems more ram than human. The gray pottery is the same as found on most Han vessels. Although the right arm re-glued back to the body with no loss, and the very outer surface of its right ear is cleanly chipped away, hardly noticeable, as its inner color is the same as the surface color, in good original ancient condition.
