Impression Fine. Soft "bokashi" shading to background, tree limb, crow's beak; "gauffraged" accumulation of snow; woodgrain faintly visible; fine detailing.
Condition Good to Very Good. (A few very tiny scattered spots; light toning; slight wrinkling. Verso: light-moderate toning, tiny 1/8-inch tapes at edges.) May be trimmed (?).
Reference/Illus Very similar to "Crow, Cranes, and Camellias" pl# K-5-8 (grey version).
Comments Classic Koson "crow on a branch" image. Very slightly different from #CG-853's similar snow-covered hanging limbs--except longest ones are shorter in this print (from which this appears to be re-carved). See comparison.
