Rare - 1900 - Odd Shunga - Shikake-e Postcard
Authentic Meiji period Japanese erotic art shunga woodblock print trick picture (shikake-e) c.1900 by an anonymous artist. It's an actual postcard consisting of three layers. The bottom layer is standard postcard paper, while the top picture of the woman working and the hidden sex scene underneath her working are both woodblock prints. Again, the pictures themselves are, indeed, woodblock prints. The colors and impressions are quite good. Overall fair condition as the top picture, as well as the sex scene picture have numerous tears. Only the bottom half of the front picture is meant to fold up and reveal the shunga scene underneath, not the entire picture. Please refer to photos.
Despite the condition, still a very scarce and odd collectible shunga piece from Japan's Meiji Period.
