I have a set of wall hangings that were bought by an great aunt and her husband in the late forties and fifties when they lived in Saudi and worked for Aramco. They spent a lot of time travelling Asia and bought many things including rugs that needed special papers to take out of China. We are trying to figure out who made and painted what we own and what they are for insurance.

My reading and rough translation of the first plaque.
Gone with the wind and dust, thinking about the outside world,
Even if you are happy the blush will stay on your cheek

Apocryphal markings;
年製  Made During the Qianlong Reign

Probably dates back to the first half of the 20th century.

Perhaps, the two seals (round and square) after the inscription would tell more about the artist if the photo was of better quality.

With regards,
