Comments - Handsome woodblock print envelope featuring chrysanthemums, cherry blossoms, fans, a white streamer, pinwheels, and a hobby horse toy with striped reins. The blue background features an allover embossed "cracked ice" pattern. Metallic pigment accents 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 and unusual decorative item.
