Subject:Please Help With Signatures/Marks
Posted By: Mary Tue, Jul 11, 2017 IP:


I have acquired two prints recently and I was hoping that someone could help me identify the artist or decipher what these two marks say. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your time!

The second picture with "10/25" is Japanese Katakana writting.
ビ = bi
ツ = tsu
ク = ku
フ = fu
オ = o
vertical line - separation mark?
ド = do.
So Bitsuku Fuo-do ? No Idea what it means, no hits on Google.

The reading of the first Chinese seal sript from left to right:

   包美   Meibao Beautiful bag
   度尺 Chidu yardstick
(Yardstick of beautiful bag(s)
Could be a name of ladies bags brand

The second print is a Japanese katakana script
   ビックフォード reads bikkufoudo
Could be the transcript of Bickford
