New Year's Day Greeting, 1895 - Lovely scene of a beauty greeting a noblewoman at New Year's, kneeling respectfully at left.

A smaller tray holds graduated red lacquer sake cups. Beautifully detailed with burnishing on the hair, and embossing on the guest's kimono and the white areas of the noblewoman's robe.
