Surimono - Surimono are an exclusive subcategory of Japanese woodblock prints. Poetry clubs commissioned these designs for distribution to a small audience of members, most often as New Year's greetings. These images included a wonderful range of subjects along with poems or verses. This Meiji era surimono is unusually large, and features an attractive floral arrangement of a pine branch, miniature yellow chrysanthemums, and red berries in a low container filled with water.
