Dear forum members!
It's about the Eisen woodblock "Young Woman Holding a Bowl of Goldfish". A copy is known without the publisher's seal. See -
As you can see on this woodcut, the publisher's seal is damaged.
Only the last character is more or less clearly visible.
Of all the publishers who worked with Eisen, Aritaya Sayemon and Daikokuya Henkichi are the most suitable, slightly less Moritaya Hanzo and Wakasaya Yoichi.
Someone may have seen this piece of Eisen with the entire publisher's seal.
Thanks in advance
