Original Chikanobu (1838 - 1912) Japanese Woodblock Print
Serving a New Year's Meal
Series; Inner Chiyoda Palace (Chiyoda no Ooku)
Serving a New Year's Meal - A lovely, classic Chikanobu scene of three women in the inner palace. One woman sits regally on a wide cushion, her long hair and kimono flowing behind her. Two others prepare to serve her a meal from a beautiful lacquered tray. An excellent design with embossed detail on all three kimono and silvered mica pigment on the flower vase. A beautiful choice for display.
