Hello Hans Olof,
At antique shop it looked a bit messy by bad handling during the time but I found that the blurs, dusty oily marks, and some others messy marks(on the face, hands, and around the fan ) are actually precisely made by artist to be like that. When you put light thoroughly it become even extremely beautiful like the lantern, living. I have been comparing two other known prints ( Artelino, Waseda ) and find out that my print is a bit different in details ( most noticeable is the brawn colophon on the left bottom positioned a bit lower than on Artelino print but not that much lowered as on Waseda print and brawn strokes of the brush on the edges of the fan are bit different as well ! ) Anyway now feel good I have it.
Thank you very much for your help,
