My understanding is that the set was issued in album form so that originals should have a centre fold. Both the Michener and Newland/Uhlenbeck reproductions show the line break in the upright pillar left lacking in yours. I would guess that yours would date from Meiji times in view of the pigments/fading. Still a lovely design.
