    I bought 7 of these at the local flea market. They are approx. 5" x 7". Very unusual paper...could it be rice paper that feels and dents like a very thin foam core. Were these painted for the tourist trade? I had a set of similar syle of painting that came in a fancy box with about 15 small miniature paintings. These are larger. Can you tell me anything about them?

      They are wonderful. I have them on ebay this week and I would love to put more information about them. Look under seller name judykahooti to see all of them.
