Chikanobu Estate Collection - We recently acquired a huge collection of Chikanobu prints from a Tokyo estate. This varied group features rare and pristine prints as well as popular subjects from favorite series. We got a great price on the group, so we'll be passing the savings along to you with attractive pricing, often at a fraction of the retail. Don's miss the selections from this terrific collection of Chikanobu being added to our auctions now!
Tea Ceremony - Lovely triptych of beauties greeting each other in a garden outside a teahouse as they meet for a tea ceremony. Two women bow respectfully to each other, standing on the stepping-stones in the courtyard. Two beauties rise from their seats on a bench behind them, wearing colorful flowing kimono. Beautifully detailed fabrics with fine embossed patterns on the white kimono trim. A handsome scene of a traditional Japanese activity.
