The characters in the seal are in katagana/hiragana?
The prints are definitely from a publisher's sample book. I think on publishers like Daikokuya who published prints in the shikishiban size around 1900 and who used sample books for ordering his prints. But the designs of the prints remind me rather on the pattern books published by Unsodo in the 1920s-30s for artisans... Graduates from the Kyoto City school of fine arts and crafts could be another source for a research.
