I'm seeking information on small sized prints, measuring approximately 7,4 x 6,5 cm (2.91 x 2.56 inch). Is there a denomination?
This format seems to have been in use for miniature actor bust portraits sold in a sleeve, during the Bunka period in Edo.
I was thinking of a 1/2 kokonotsugiriban (17,5 x 13 cm), but that does not match entirely.

Guy.
