Ichikawa Danjuro V as Akushichibei Kagekiyo, Ichikawa Danjuro VI as Hanakawado Sukeroku, and Ichikawa Kodanji IV as the Fox Tadanobu, 1861 - Great design featuring portraits of threes actors depicted on circular red sake cups. From top to bottom, the actors are Ichikawa Danjuro V as Akushichibei Kagekiyo, Ichikawa Danjuro VI as Hanakawado Sukeroku, and Ichikawa Kodanji IV as the Fox Tadanobu. At top, Kagekiyo grimaces with rage, clenching his fist before him, his stage makeup and flared wig adding to his fierce appearance. At bottom, a magic fox who has taken the form of Minamoto no Yoshitsune's loyal retainer, Tadanobu, looking up with a worried expression as he crouches with his sleeves before him. A rarely seen series in an interesting format, nicely detailed with light embossing on Tadanobu's white fur robe.
