Woodblock Printed Triptych showing the Sugawaraya and Yonedaya. by Kunimasa
Fabulous triptych showing the Sugawaraya Inn and luxury fabric store Yonedaya in Uzen Province (present day Yamagata prefecture).
by Kunimasa (1848-1920) who was later known as Utagawa Kunisada III.
Published 1872 by Yamashiroya Jimbei.
In very good condition. Some wear and minor staining. Unjoined. Light backing paper and a few tiny chips to edges.
Very interesting in that it shows the name Sugawaraya in English (Roman) letters too.
