Excellent early excellent impression and colours, with some gofun white. Well visible wood grain. Untrimmed, retaining the unprinted paper margin in top. Lower left corner minimally creased, else excellent condition.
A rare image, here in an especially fine and rare colour variant, with light grey background and yellow ginkgo leaves. Completely unfaded – the delicate pink-colour of the beaks and feet is perfectly preserved.
