Toyokuni III/Kunisada (1786 - 1864) Japanese Woodblock Reprint
Comments - Interesting image of a beauty grooming, carefully trimming her nails with a pair of scissors that has a bell dangling from it. The sleeves of her blue and gray striped, butterfly print kimono are pushed down to the waist, a blue cloth tied around her shoulders. A robe is draped over a shelf at right, and a reversible obi, a pipe case, and a tobacco pouch rest in a heap on the floor nearby. A charming design, rarely seen in reprint.
