Description: A Yoshida Toshi original print from the series of 12 "Kacho Mokuhanga" (flower and bird woodblock prints), depicting birds and flowers for each month of the year.

The series was commissioned by the Franklin Mint in the early 1980s. It is well known that Yoshida issued landscape and bird designs over in the US through them, but he also did a smaller-scale calendar series with their Japanese branch, for the local market, and this is from that series.

They were sold in a 'limited edition' (quantity unspecified) with a certificate of authenticity, signed, and sealed in a wooden frame with an acrylic cover.

This print for the month of October depicts an Eurasian jay on a branch of a chocolate vine (Akebi) trying to reach the fruit inside the shell which is wide open and ready to be eaten.

The displayed dimension is the print size and the frame outer size is 32 x 24 x 1.5 cm.


There are a few slight foxing spots on this print. And the mat is a little toned. Also, there is a slight scratch on the upper and lower left part of the acrylic cover.
