|Condition:||ChŻberi (middle part) of light brown silk brocade, top and bottom of pale blue silk. Dark-brown ichimonji and futai, black lacquer rollers. Titled, inscribed and dated wooden box: the box has suffered woodworm damage; it is dated Bunka 10 (1813), and is the oldest original box I have ever had.|
Probably the original mounting (again a very rare phenomenon), which is a bit brittle, but still serviceable. In spite of light mottling the painting is in overall good condition.

The signature and seal correspond to that on a painting of two quails in The British Museum. Also the signatures and seals are identical: 畫所預従四位上土佐守藤原光貞 - Edokoro-azukari juyon'i [no] jo Tosa-no-kami Fujiwara Mitsusada.
