Oban book of Birds


This is an Oban Album of Color woodblocks of birds. There are 10 separate two page prints. The artist is unknown to us but these are signed on the cover and on each print. Because these are in an accordion style book many of the images are partially split where the pages went together, an easy repair or each image could be framed by itself. Each image measures 8 1/2X13 1/2 inches.

Samurai Triptych


This is a very fine original Japanese color woodblock print in triptych, overall image size 14 x 28 inches, c. 1890s, with the artist and publisher stamps in the lower left and upper right corner, as well as additional Japanese characters in the left margin below the window mat.
