Toshimine Original Japanese Wootdblock Print (Meiji Period)

Artist: Toshimine Tsuitsui (1863-1934)

Format: Kuchi-e( approx: 30cmx22cm),

Conditions: Fine colors and impression .Light toning and slight soiling, as is common in these Kuchi-e pieces. The print is folded vertically (now flattened) as are all kuchi-e prints (because of their use), so this is not a negative.
