The kiwame seal was used on and off until 1842, when it was replaced by personal censor's seals.

For a rather brief period in the 1810s the kiwame was used in combination with so-called gy˘ji seals. The oblong seal below the kiwame on your print is one of them. You'll find a very similar gy˘ji on this Toyokuni print from 1811 here.
