This is a highly decorative antique Japanese woodblock print.
It is in good antique condition - and has recently been professionally re-framed. It has a nice cream colour acid free mount - and a simple black frame. It is as fresh as a daisy and all ready just to be hung on your wall.
The woodblock dates to the 19th century - and is signed with stamps by the artist, publisher and printer. I have sadly been unable to identify these for you yet - but will keep working on it!
This lovely work probably dates to the late Edo period in Japan (c 1860 - 1880).
It is certainly a most attractive example with three Geisha dressed in the most elaborate kimonos. One lady carries a large blue parasol to protect their complexions from the sun. The detail on the fabric is just delicious - must have taken ages to carve all those out!
The colours are also quite subtle - with the use of predominately blue and rose pink inks.
My antique woodblock is in lovely antique condition - with no tears or issues with the paper - just a wee blotch (as you can see in my images on the middle of the top edge) - but a good example.
