Comments - Interesting kabuki portrait of Onoe Kikugoro III as the yakko or footman Dairyo (?) Hisayoshi in the play "Sanmon hitome Senbon." He looks to the side with a worried expression, holding a woodblock portrait of a warrior in the mouth of a large container at his side. A tea whisk, tea caddy, and spoon lie on the floor before him. An expressive figure with a nicely detailed setting.
