Comments - Interesting scene inside the Imperial household showing the Empress and her ladies-in-waiting at work making cotton strings to aid wounded soldiers during the Satsuma Rebellion. The Empress sits at a small table on a raised platform, a pair of scissors and a stack of folded cloth set out before her. At lower right, a basket hold oversize peony blossoms, and irises and clouds decorate the folding screen behind the Empress. Nicely detailed with embossing on the white kimono.
