Sericulture, Stages 7 and 8 by Yoshikazu (active circa 1850 - 1870)

Original Yoshikazu (active circa 1850 - 1870) Japanese Woodblock Print
Sericulture, Stages 7 and 8

Comments - Charming print depicting two stages in the process of sericulture, the art of making silk. In stage seven, a beauty boils silkworm cocoons to release the silk, winding the thread onto a spool. She smiles as she works, her sleeves tied back with a red sash and her hair protectively wrapped in a blue and white cloth. An inset above shows stage seven, where women are stretching silk floss and hanging it over a line. An attractive and interesting design.

Artist - Yoshikazu (active circa 1850 - 1870)
Image Size - 14 1/2" x 9 3/4"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Losses at edge, tear, a few holes, repaired. Creasing throughout, toning, slight soiling. Please see photos for details.
