Description

This was purchased from a collectors estate in WNC and is small, measuring 4.5 inches wide and 6.75 inches high approximate,visible print area. Paper is in excellent overall condition with some discoloration at the edges. Color is vibrant. I believe this is an anime woodblock print and was labeled as being from the 1920’s when I purchased it a few weeks ago. I have not opened the back as it is framed professionally and do not see a signature. A reverse image search showed one result which I could not translate. Would love to know as much as possible.

Yours is not 19th but mid 20th century re-print and therefor not signed.
