Wedding Ceremony of a Noble Couple, 1900 - Handsome scene from the wedding ceremony of a noble couple at the Imperial Palace. This may be a depiction of the wedding of the Crown Prince Yoshihito marrying Kujo Sadako in May 1900. The royal couple sits on plus chairs in front of a cloth-covered table topped with a traditional wedding display featuring symbols of luck, longevity, and fidelity, including a bonsai pine, blossoming plum branches, a crane, and the elderly couple Jo and Uba. At right, attendants carry in trays with sake cups and a kettle, along with a long-handled sake server. Dignitaries in uniform sit on either side of the pair. An attractive historic subject, nicely detailed with burnishing on the black uniforms and the women's' hair.
