Comments - Handsome scene of the Meiji Empress arriving to join the Emperor to greet waiting dignitaries. At right, she is escorted into the room by several ladies-in-waiting, wearing a purple outer kimono patterned with clouds and unusual animal motifs in circular medallions. The Emperor wears a military dress uniform, an attendant holding his plumed cap on a purple silk cloth. Men are seated along the edges of the room beyond, and a carriage can be seen in the courtyard at right. An interesting scene, nicely detailed with extensive embossing on the white robes.
