Frogs and Yamabuki
Designer: Utagawa Hiroshige
Era: Post-war | Production quality (1~5): 4 | Condition (1~5): 5
Description: This image from Hiroshige's well-known series of 'kacho-ga' (Flower and bird designs) has a bit of a twist - the bird this time has been replaced by a pair of frogs.
The craftsmen hired by the Yuyudo Company to work on this image were two of the top men of the era: the carver was Maeda Kentaro, with Niimi Saburo doing the printing.
