SPECIMEN HIKIFUDA. - A large hikifuda - handbill - or modest poster for Kyoto haberdashery bargain sales.

n.p. [Kyoto 190-?]. Colour lithograph 37x26cm. An outstanding copy. ¶ This splendidly flamboyant and assertive modern young Japanese woman is unlike any other I've seen from this period. Being able to decipher phrases like "bargain sale" but unable to decipher the trademark or any particular merchant's name here I suspect this is a sample produced by or for Kyoto silk merchants and haberdashers. Being on much heavier paper than usual for hikifuda clinches the matter for me.
