    • Description

      The scroll is slightly foxed overall as it was painted years ago.
      We estimate it was paitned over 50 years ago.
      Unfortunately, there are some noticeable stains with water.
      Several tears on the mounting are also recognized.
      As a whole, the condition of this scroll is not good.
      Although, three Ayu fish on Bamboo leaves are drawn well.
