Remarks
1936 catalogue no. 897
Only one colour variant was listed in Watanabe's catalogue and only the pink variant had Robert O. Muller provenance and "Made in Japan" on its verso.
The orange variant is probably late 20th century, using a different keyblock, and with wider lines characteristic in reproductions (see below). This unknown printmaker also made reproductions of the reverse Terajima in Snow and green-robed Konjikido at Hiraizumi.
