Item:333183565984ORIGINAL ANTIQUE JAPANESE COLOUR BLOCK PRINT - 3 DOVES AND GINGKO LEAVESSIGNED AND SEAL MARK - SUPERB QUALITY I've just realised how little I know about Japanese prints, but I recognise good quality work when I see it - this print of three doves or pigeons is exquisite - the background is charcoal grey - a white bird is landing or taking off as a male bird displays it's tail fan hopefully to a oblivious hen bird, pecking the ground. Yellow leaves of Gingko Biloba fall and lie scattered on the ground. As well as being printed with several different colours, the birds are slightly embossed - so there is an impression of a three-dimensional effect - this can be seen most clearly on the wings of the airborne bird - and on the back of the print. There is a discreet 2 character signature or mark in the bottom left corner, with a pale seal mark in orange below - I make no pretense of knowing what it says.Age - these prints turned up in a lot of papers dating to the early part of the 20th century - I am assuming around that age or possibly earlier.Size - sheet of paper is 14.5cm x 20.5cm approx - actual printed area is 9cm x 14cm approx.Condition - as shown in photos - please look carefully - area of print is quite clean - the margin and edges of the sheet have some discolouration and slight creasing as shown.Region of Origin:Japanese, Product:Print, Age:1900-1940, Original/Repro:Antique Original
