This stunning original collection of Japanese Surimono woodblock prints were commissioned by the Franklin Mint Gallery of Fine Art and created by Toshi Yoshido in the Yoshido family studio in Japan. These are not reproduction prints and are beautiful. I have 6 prints all together and they are framed and matted in their original teak wood frames. The prints are entitled “The Flowers and Birds of the Oriental Year” and depict birds in their matching seasonal landscape. Each print has the artist’s signature “Toshi”, his chop mark and the title of the prints are in the lower left & right corners of the prints while another artist’s signature is pencil signed by the artist “Toshi Yoshido” (in Kansi) in the bottom borders. Minimal scratching to the plexiglass and some scuffs, scratches to the teak frames. They have the Franklin Mint Certificate of Authenticity sticker on back of most. They were aquired all together from a fine estate sale of wonderful things. They are in wonderful vintage condition, colors, are vivid and vibrant, are in layers on the original Japanese Washi paper. These fabulous prints are rare and ready to hang. Will look awesome hanging as a collection together, a gallery wall. The frames are 12 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ and the prints are 6 1/2″ x 9″ inside frame as far as I can see. Please look at all pictures.
