We are gradually selling them. The size of this woodblock print is 16 1/8 x 10 3/4 inches. The artist’s signature with Toshidama seal, carver’s chop mark and the date this woodblock print was originally made “Meji 23 (1890)” are close to the middle left edge of the print. The colors, which are vivid and vibrant, are in layers on the print. The woodblock print is not attached to any backing paper or cardboard and strong ink bleeding can be seen through the back of the original Japanese Washi paper. This woodblock print is IN EXCELLENT CONDITION. It is hard to find such a beautiful, colorful, and rare woodblock print signed by Meiji woodblock print master Chikanobu in the public nowadays and it is definitely an incredible piece for collecting.
