Hello again Sarah,
Thank you for your appraisal inquiries with Mearto. The items presented appear to be another woodblock by Utagawa Hiroshige (歌川 広重, Japanese, 1797-1858) from his "Fifty-three Stations of the Tôkaidô"series. This one is titled "View of Akiba Mountain" (Kakegawa, Akiba-san enbô). Again, further examination of these prints outside the frames may determine proper age and authenticity. However, based on the provided measurements, it appears the print is a reprint as it is a bit larger than original impressions. As I mentioned before publisher inscriptions may be found to the margins. The original publisher of this work was Takenouchi Magohachi (Hoeidô). The estimate provided is based on recent auction estimates and results of this print as a late 19th/early 20th century reprint, as most are. The estimate is contingent on a full condition report. Please note asking or dealer prices may vary. Thank you and please take care.
