A Fuji Arts $25 Opening Special Offer Auction! Get your bid in!

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 privately published images included a wonderful range of subjects and lavish printing techniques such as embossing, burnishing, and metallic pigments. Since surimono were not sold commercially, the print runs were very small and original Edo era surimono are incredibly rare in the market today. These fine quality suriomono reprints offer a great way to collect these classic designs at an affordable price.

Hair Ornaments Surimono - Charming surimono design featuring an assortment of hair ornaments. Black lacquer boxes hold hairpins and a comb, with another comb resting on a tissue nearby. Nicely detailed with burnishing on the sides of the boxes and embossing on the teeth of the comb, the brown cloth, and the white objects at lower right. The first time we've seen this subject in reprint.
