Note: The seller had attributed this print to Natori Shunsen. 
Given that it is unsigned and stylized, it is difficult to say
with any certainty who the artist is.  Moreover, the same
seller also erroneously attributed certain other prints to
Shunsen.  If it were by Shunsen,  it would be among the
earliest of Shunsen's prints.
