Not long ago I obtained an okiyo-e image in the shape of oshi-e. It's in a glass case made in Holland in the late 1880's (old Dutch newspaper on the back). The oshi-e may or may not be based on a woodblock print - so far I haven't identified a match.
My questions:
When would the oshi-e itself have been made, and why do you think so?
Are you aware of a similar object, in a museum, or elsewhere?
Is there perhaps an "oshi-e specialist" I might consult?

Note: the colours in the photo are a little too washed out. I'll try and post a second image with some details that are more true to life.

Thank you very much for your reply.

Regards,

Frank
