Judging by the faces I believe the plaques are from the 70's.

Thank you very much to all, here are the pics of rest of them. I don't know anything about their artistic features, but i see real wood frames, old style varnish, and the hanging hooks seem to be hand carved, as they show minor differences.
the bottom red stamps seem to vary.
any idea what sort of value they hold?
thank you

the closest seal i managed to find is described as

646. Dated "Spring 1947, Liu Ke Rui painted at Zhu Shan". (Zhu Shan or Pearl Hill is the area of the former Imperial porcelain factory in Jingdezhen.)

not exactly same.. you experts would know :)

I'm unsure of the red seals but the script in black appears to read as follows:

"Summer of wuyin" (A cyclical year last appearing in 1938 and 1998 - wu yin xia yue - 戊寅夏月)

"Done at Zhushan" (Another name for Jingdezhen - Zuo yu(?) Zhu shan - 作於[?]珠山)

I'm inclined to say the year likely was 1938, because the sweet doll-like expression of the maiden began appearing in the latter part of the Republic period (1912-49), when Jingdezhen painters were starting to become dominated by a new generation, which was diverging from traditional Qing norms in the figural painting style.

Best regards,

Bill H.
