Sawamura Tanosuke III as the Servant Okitsu and Ichikawa III Kuzo as Nakama Ichisuke, 1865 - Handsome kabuki scene featuring Sawamura Tanosuke III as the servant Okitsu Ichikawa III Kuzo as the commoner Nakama Ichisuke in a scene from the play "Toki Moyaya Minori no Komahiki."

Detailed with fine line work in the hair.
