The Wedding of Prince Yoshihito, Son of the Meiji Emperor, 1900 - Terrific view of the wedding ceremony of Crown Prince Yoshihito in 1900, the son of the Meiji Emperor and Empress, who watch from behind a fine reed blind at right. The prince wears a black robe with a beautiful lacquer pattern, and a court cap. His bride sits across from him, holding a small sake cup and wearing an ornate headdress like that of the empress. A low table behind the group is set with symbols of longevity and good luck for the couple's future, including a bonsai pine tree, a turtle, cranes, and the elderly couple Jo and Uba, who represent love and fidelity. A beautifully detailed image with embossing on the white kimono trim, additional lacquer on the hair and the black edge of the platform, and silver mica accents.
