Comments - Charming scene of beauties in a teahouse preparing to play music. The woman at right holds a koto while her companion rests a song book on her knee. At center right, a maid carries a cushion up the stairs, a lantern in her hand. The room overlooks a blossoming cherry tree against the night sky, and a lamp trimmed with colorful tassels hangs over head. An attractive design with a nicely detailed setting, with embossing on the white kimono collars.
