The scroll is slightly foxed overall as it was painted years ago.
There are a few strong folds, some grazes and stains on the mounting part.
And also there are some faint spots on the drawing part.
As a whole, the condition of this scroll is not good.
Although, Mt. Fuji is painted artistically and figuratively in the Japanese traditional painting style.
This is Chagake type hanging scroll which is usually hung on at a Tokonoma
area in Japanese room for Chanoyu Japanese tea ceremony.
Of course, it is also good to hang it on a wall of any ordinary room.
Please note that this scroll is not judged by any appraiser.
So, we cannnot guarantee that it is authentic one.
