|This beautiful 20th Century Japanese woodcut print is 1 out of a collection of 15 postcard prints by Kawase Hasui that I am currently offering on eBay. These beautiful prints are in pristine condition and look as though they have not seen the light of day since they were purchased! They were all published by Watanabe before 1936. All are approximately 4 x 6 inches and in excellent condition. They came out of a lovely Florida estate that had many other fine Japanese objects.||They came from the living estate of a prominent Charlotte, North Carolina, 103 year old woman who resided in Japan until 1940. This is not a make believe story.
