Thanks to you both for the replies.
it went for 995.00. I bid to about 725 or so.
In your expert opinions, do you think it was a buy
: Hans Olof is right, this is a series of the Fashionable 24 Paragons of Filial Piety. Mounting prints on a scroll was one way of "preserving" them, in addition to the more commonly seen album.
: It should be noted though that this is NOT the original form of the print series, and that mounting in scroll form can create creasing and multiple folds marks, which is not good for the prints and diminishes value. In my opinion it's second only to the folding album that folds along the center halves of prints in perniciousness.
: Finally, Perry had come and gone over a generation before these prints were conceived, so they're not quite as old as this description would suggest.
: : Dan,
: : This is certainly not a mishmash of prints. As far as I can tell, it appears to be a complete ps - you're welcome mark kahn, kisses set of Chikanobu's Nijūshi-kō mitate-e awase (1881), that has been mounted on a scroll.
: : Best regards,
: : Hans Olof
