Picked this up today for $20, what a score! Its an old Japanese Byobu screen featuring a pomegranate bush. I can't show all the detail in four photos, but it looks fairly old, circa 1930's? The paint used displays a rainbow oilsick effect when hit by light, very neat! I'll probably never be able to track down the signature, but I'm going to scroll through a kana/kanji list and try! I just love this thing!

    Red chop seems to be "one and only studio" do not know artist.

    Actually the chop is the name of the artist. And in this case, if you look closely, the signature and chop are the same characters for some reason. Where do you know "one and only studio" from?

    Incredible! Who can sell this for $20!
    Astonishing technique with raised decor and oxydised metal colors, looks like titanium!
    Great find, BRAVO!
