Onagadori (long-tailed chicken) in Plum Tree

Although the seals on this print are unread, the subject and style suggest this relates to two similar compositions with onagadori perched on a branch set against a pink or blue bokashi background, both signed and sealed by Ishii Tsuruzo (1887-1973) and likewise issued by the same publisher as this pirnt, Toyota Ikunosuke.
