Unusual 19th century wooden Japanese printing block carved on one side with numerous characters both in standard kanji and in cursive script (sosho), most probably a page from a book. Excellent quality sharp carving, fantastic patina on the piece with caked ink all over the printing surface, wonderful feel of age. Comes with a bronze fitting for hanging, makes a wonderful wall decoration. Size 5 x 7 5/8 inches, thickness 3/4 inches.
