The House of the Golden Vase in the New Yoshiwara - Attractive scene depicting courtesans at the modern House of the Golden Vase (Kinpeiro) in the New Yoshiwara. The verandah above is crowded with beauties enjoying a view of the busy street. In the center a young girl leans over the balustrade, using a slender pipe to try to retrieve a fallen hair ornament on the roof below. Through the window, a woman can be seen reading a long letter. At lower left, an elegantly dressed oiran or high-ranking courtesan stands at the entrance, an attendant holding an umbrella over her. Cherry trees bloom in the courtyard, and an ornate tasseled lantern hangs from the eaves at upper right. A beautifully detailed design.
