I found this item at a thrift store and it peaked my interest.  A quick online search led me to believe that it is a Japanese wood block print. I am not at all familiar with this type of thing.  I’m wondering if there is any value to it and how would be the best way to store it/frame it.  Any information about this piece is welcomed.  Thank you!

    The signature 應挙 is that of Maruyama Okyo (円山応挙 1733-1795). The print itself is from 1893

    Title of the series 中古諸名家美人竸

    Publisher 青木恒三郎 Aoki Tsunesaburo (Osaka). This publisher made many series of reproductions of the works of great masters in the 1890s.

    Woodprints tend to fade in the light, so the best way to preserve them is in a chemically neutral envelope.
