Vtg 20s Shotei Takahashi Japanese Woodblock Print Bluebirds Cherry Blossom Sgnd For Sale
I recently acquired an extensive antique Chinese/Japanese/Asian collection. I am now listing the woodblock prints and art portion of this estate collection. Many rare woodblock prints from the one owner estate.<p>Up for sale is an original vintage Japanese woodblock print by artist Hiroaki Shotei Takahashi and is titled "Bluebirds on Cherry Blossom". This woodblock dates from the 1920's. Pencil signed on the original mat as seen in the photos. Tipped onto the original mat and can easily be removed. The woodblock is also marked with the artist mark and publisher seal. Woodblock is in excellent shape for its age. No fading, no fauxing, no tears, no holes, no water damage, no rips and no repairs. The mat has some fauxing from age and does not effect the actual woodblock. Woodblock measures approx. 5" by 7 1/4" and then the entire mat measures 9 1/4"by 12 1/4". Very rare Japanese woodblock print and is a must for any collector. Found at a recent 95 year estate and was stored away for years. See my other sales for other antique/vintage original Asian art and Japanese woodblock prints from the same estate. Will ship overseas and combine shipping on multiple wins. Glare spots are from the light reflection and not on the actual surface of the item.
