> The Artist is Utagawa Kunisada
Kunisada II, actually. Given the date in the censor seal (1865/5, I think - the 5 is definite, not sure about the year, but it's definitely sometime between 1859-1871, given the form of the seal), that's too late for the original Kunisada (he had long since changed his name to Toyokuni). The signature is also that of Kunisada II - the 'sada' is angular, not straight.
> I'm doing a bit of research for an appraisal
I'm a bit surprised to hear that; the appraisal will probably cost as much as (if not more than) the print is worth, it's not a very valuable one.
