Comments - Attractive hashira-e or pillar print of a kabuki couple. The courtesan grins eagerly as she looks down, wearing a light blue kimono with a netted pattern and scattered blossoms. Her hair is arranged with in a smooth bun adorned with tortoiseshell combs and hairpins decorated with flowers. Her companion looks up with a worried frown, his arms folded across his chest and tucked into the sleeves of his dotted kimono. Nice expressive figures.
