白雲繞列山 - white cloud surrounding the mountains

飛雁送遠帆 - flying geese sent a sailboat off to afar

獨釣寒江雪 - Alone, fishing on the chilling river with a snowy view

All with the same date 癸丑仲夏 (mid summer of most likely 1913年 or 1973年)

It depends on how much is the price and how much you like the display.

It's closer to some kind of handicraft instead of art, so it probably doesn't have much of a resale value. However, if you really like the display and it's inexpensive, I don't see why not.
