The Noda (Chidori) Jewel River in Mutsu Province

Series; The Six Jewel Rivers

A Special 1938 Takamizawa Group - Founded in 1911, the Takamizawa Publisher of Tokyo has published some of the finest reprints of classic ukiyo-e designs. Drawing on the traditions and methods of the Edo era, the company produced reprints with the utmost care and great attention to detail, masterfully reproducing color, line work and even wood grain detail. Published in 1938, this handsome reprint group features designs by master artists such as Utamaro, Kiyonaga, Eishi, Hokusai, Hiroshige, Sharaku, and others. Each features a Takamizawa publisher seal on the  reverse. A great opportunity to acquire a high quality reprint of a famous Edo era subject.

The Noda (Chidori) Jewel River in Mutsu Province - Beautiful scene of shiokumi or brine maidens from a series depicting young women in natural settings along the Six Tama or Jewel Rivers. Two of the beauties are collecting salt water for processing into salt, the woman in the center carrying a yoke with pails suspended by ropes over her shoulder. The beauty behind her pulls a small wagon with a wooden tub on it. Both wear straw aprons over their delicately detailed kimono. A wonderfully detailed design with small birds on the ground, colorful leaves on the maple tree at right, and a traditional thatched-roof home in the background. Lovely soft color and elegant line work, with touches of embossing on the clothing. A terrific Edo era design from a rarely seen series.
