Close up view of the calligraphy artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This is a unique wall scroll that features Happy Buddha at the top along with 100 different ways to write "fu". This character means good luck or good fortune in Chinese, Japanese Kanji, and old Korean Hanja.
This is a great thing to hang, or give as a gift for Chinese New Years.
This is etched/printed on red paper in gold ink. To be clear, unlike most of our artwork, this is a print - this is not hand-painted. The print was then mounted to a silk brocade wall scroll by hand at our workshop in Beijing.
The print is not signed per se, and I don't have artist information. These pieces are done more for decor, so it's common for the artist to remain anonymous. In this case, there is a signature stamp which indicates the artist's "Zhou Jun-Cheng".

Gary's random little things about China:
When you sit down to eat at a restaurant in China, you will almost never see a bottle of soy sauce on the table like you might at a Chinese restaurant in the USA or UK.
In Chinese cooking culture, soy sauce is a seasoning reserved for use in the kitchen.
The fact that soy sauce can be found at Chinese restaurants outside of China probably comes from westerner confusion between Japanese food and Chinese food.
The most popular Japanese food outside of Japan is sushi, which of course is always served with soy sauce. This is the most likely reason that soy sauce migrated out of the kitchen on onto the table at your Chinese restaurant in the west.
