Dear Victoria,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. So that I may best assist you, can you please upload an image of the back of the actual print. It means it need to be removed from the frame. Its otherwise impossible to see if its an original one or a later print.

Thanks

There is nothing on the back. It is plain white and printed on poster paper

Dear Victoria,

Here's an example of how the back of an original woodblock must look like. See the ink is also visible on the back ( click on the picture of the back in this lot ). Please show the 'naked back' of yours in the light if possible so I can see the back in original way. If this is not possible please let me know.
