... this is one of my Japanese hand carved wood blocks...my 80 year old father in law thought it may have been used on bags at a pharmacy...to me, it`s art, at the very least it is made by a highly skilled craftsman, some of the kanji are tiny, I have quite a few...oldest is dated 1830 on the back....this one here may be from the turn of last century...possibly up to the `20`s...



ooops...


`K...change of image...this is one of the old wood block carvings the Japanese used for making sweets back when....
