Condition: Color fading, consistent with early 1800's prints. A couple of clear spot restored in the early 1900's. A large strip of paper glued on top of the print (In the back), probably a mid 1950's type of restoration to cover some clear spots in the upper corners. Very good overall condition.
Notes: Very rare Pillar print, not referenced online by any museums. These are two sheets bound together to form the Hashira-e format.
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
