Comments - Attractive scene of beauties and children enjoying a variety of pastimes. In the center, a young boy rides a toy wooden horse, holding the striped reins with his hands as he smiles over his shoulder at the girl at right, who is watching a woman fold an origami crane. At upper left, a woman leans over a wooden frame as she embroiders a floral design on a length of lavender cloth. Just below, a woman relaxes with a pipe after doing laundry, a shallow wooden tub at her side. Her sleeves are tied back with a red sash, and her hairstyle is protectively covered with a blue and white cloth. A screen patterned with peonies stands in the center of the room, the black lacquer frame burnished to a soft sheen, and a basket of pine and flowering plum branches hangs at right. A charming design with wonderful color and detail, including a burnished checked pattern in the boy's blue coat, embossing in the white kimono trim, and additional burnishing in the black kimono collars.
