Matsushima no Tsubone - Charming portrait of the lady-in-waiting (tsubone) Matsushima writing a letter, a brush in one hand and a roll of paper in the other. She smiles happily as she looks down, wearing a blue-green kimono patterned with colorful tie-dyed patches over a red under robe. At right, a vase holds a blossoming plum branch, an early sign of spring. An attractive design, nicely detailed with light embossing on the white kimono collar and trim.
