scroll painting

Hanging scroll picture of bird, possibly a parrot, perched on a plum blossom branch. The scroll would be hung in the home. Mounted on red paper, in the bottom right hand corner, written in Chinese script, is: 'Produced by 31 Images Printing/Publishing Company.' In the bottom left hand corner is printed: 'Published by K&K Printing Co. Shanghai'. On the left hand side of the scroll there are two Chinese characters, which may be the name of the printer or the name of the picture.
