'Bird in a Nandina Tree'
This classic Japanese woodblock miniature print depicts a bird in a berry bush, or specifically, a Nandina Tree also known as 'heavenly bamboo', which is a semi-evergreen broadleaf shrub, which produces red berries that last from fall to spring. The Nandina branch covers the print, and the winged bird gently holds his place in search of a berry. The colors are particularly nice shading in charcoal and brightened by the red berries and green leaves. This print measures 6" x 4", and it is handsomely framed in a vintage bamboo frame, accented with a red bead trim measuring 7" x 5". It likely dates to c1930. P5321 $85.00
