Description

The scroll is slightly foxed overall as it was painted years ago.
There are some rucks and folds on the mounting.
There are quite a few faint spots on the drawing part, however, those are not so noticeable.
As a whole, the condition of this scroll is so-so.
Although, a Japanese swimming carp (Koi fish) is painted artistically.
Koi fish is considered as a fortunate creature in Japan.
Please note that this scroll is not authenticated by any appraiser.
