Original Meiji era Japanese Woodblock Print
Woodblock Print Envelope with Rabbits and Waves

Comments - Charming woodblock print envelope beautifully decorated with a pattern of leaping rabbits and crashing waves, with accents of metallic pigment that have oxidized to a dark tone. The long narrow format would be nicely suited to tanazku or poem slips, but we are not sure of the original use. An attractive decorative item.

Artist - Meiji era artist (unsigned)

Image Size - 8 1/8" x 2 1/8"

Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Slight toning and soiling. Please see photos for details.
