Seashells Surimono by Hokkei (1780 - 1850)

Hokkei (1780 - 1850) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Seashells Surimono
Series; A Series of Shells

Surimono - Surimono are an exclusive subcategory of Japanese woodblock prints. Poetry clubs commissioned these designs for distribution to a small audience of members, most often as New Year's greetings. These privately published images included a wonderful range of subjects and lavish printing techniques such as embossing, burnishing, and metallic pigments. Since surimono were not sold commercially, the print runs were very small and original Edo era surimono are incredibly rare in the market today. These fine quality suriomono reprints offer a great way to collect these classic designs at an affordable price.

Seashells Surimono - Attractive surimono design showing a variety of seashells on the beach, with waves gently lapping the shore. Beautifully detailed with embossing on the shells and waves, plus soft bokashi shading in the background. A charming subject.

Image Size - 8 1/4" x 7 1/8"
Condition - This print with excellent detail as shown. Backed with paper. Slight toning and soiling, a few creases at edges and spots. Please see photos for details.
