i have a set of three very old woodblock prints,certainly pre-1900,but im thinking they might be chinese.two are printed on silk,one is looks likeprinted on brown paper bag almost.images are about 5 by 7 size.images have two colors,blue and red besides the black.scenes depicted are two robed men studying a book,a nearly abstract landscape with tiny farmer and fisherman,and a imperial looing robed man.ther is a signature on one print,not on the other two of the set.one print is numbered f-130.do old chinese woodblocks hold any interest or value?is it possible that this sounds like a japanese print?did the japanese use silk to print on?i would print a photo,but my cheap digi-cam wont print good images.could i find out if its a chinese print by having someone who knows chnese look at the signature/thanks very much
