|Notes:||This beautiful print was published by the Ishukankokai Publisher of Tokyo in a limited edition. They quickly sold out and are very difficult to come by these days. Narazaki publisher's seal, Ito carver's seal, Uchigawa printer's seal and watermark in left margin. Strong ink bleedthrough. Nice use of silver mica in background and gold mica on kimono. Compare to same image on page 90 "The Female Image 20th Century prints of Japanese Beauties". Comes with original deluxe folder. See the full series here.
