Original Kin-u Takeshita (active circa 1930s - 1950s) Japanese Woodblock Print
Basket of Flowers

From the Uchida Publisher Archives - We were fortunate to purchase a wonderful collection of 20th century prints directly from the archives of the Uchida Art Company of Kyoto. The classic 20th century prints offered in our auction from this collection are all first edition prints of various designs released by the Uchida company in the mid-20th century. These first edition prints are unusual to come by in a nice group as they were generally sold off as they were produced. This excellent collection was held back and recently sold from the Uchida archives. These prints are a nice opportunity to collect a lovely 20th century print, or perfect as reasonably priced gifts. Don't miss out on these prints, once they sell out, we won't have them again!

Comments - Attractive image of a basket of colorful flowers and foliage, with pink peonies, yellow asters, and white chrysanthemums with pink centers. A cluster of grapes trails over the edge of the container at left, along with a red tasseled cord. A sprig of purple bellflowers rests nearby. A handsome design with delicate detail and lovely color.
