I believe it to be Japanese its amazing how fine they can trim the cork to get the finest of pictures. It is something they have been doing for a long time. The more I look the more I see & find it hard to believe that it isn't more damaged. Has anyone have a idea how old it is please, if so thank you in advance. Have a great day.

    Hi ATTWOOD these I think you will find are original as the age that shows & they are so finr in detail one day may find out approximatley worth of item. Them you never know I may just pull them & put on the market not just yet need to learn more. Did you see the second one. Slightly different era.
