: I recently acquired a woodblock print of snow covered
: shrines (very neutral colors..white, black/grey, pale
: green). I received the print with some of my mother's
: estate items. I vaguely remember when we got the
: print. We were stationed at Okinawa AFB in 1970. (I
: was 9 years old at the time.) I almost gave the print
: away until I discovered that my mother had
: many items that were collectibles. So the last few
: days I've gotten on-line and I believe it is an
: original. It is signed (in pencil) "Jun Sekino".
: There is also a red stamp along with some Japanese
: characters that are also written in pencil. I took
: the back off the frame and found a small piece of paper
: with handwritten numbers. A "94" in black marker. The
: rest is another number, but it is very faint. It looks
: like "4273J". The "4" may even be a smudge. I can't
: tell. Does anybody out there think this could be worth
: something? I'm new at this and I could use all the
: help I can get. Also, there is another print that
: looks like it was printed on fabric. It is a bird
: on a branch. The bird is brown and black with it's
: beak pointing up in the air. The branch
: leaves and background are a variety of green colors.
: There is a red stamp as well as a Japanese characters
: signature in black ink. Thanks! Karen :)

Sekino prints that are not numbered are "unlimited" editions produced in high volume. Their value is usually between 10% to 15% of the value of the same image in a numbered edition. To give you an accurate idea of your print's value we will need to know the size of both the print and the print's image.
