Description: This is a set of match label prints telling the famous story of the '47 Ronin' in 24 scenes. It was produced by a collector's group in 1934 and would have been distributed among the members. Just how many sets would have been produced is unknown, but almost certainly not more than a couple of hundred.

Scenes are numbered (in Japanese), with very small numbering located at one bottom corner of the title cartouche on each print.

The main sponsor's name(小田)also appears on each print.

The displayed dimension is each print size.


The prints in this set are slightly toned.

There are 6 prints, scene #1~#6 plus the cover, in the main image above.
