Fukusuke Dolls in a Treasure Ship by Meiji era artist (not read)

Original Meiji era Japanese Woodblock Print
Fukusuke Dolls in a Treasure Ship

Comments - Interesting image of a boy and girl in a Treasure Ship at New Year's. The childlike figures in this print are styled after the traditional China dolls known as "fukusuke," which are considered lucky. The girl is called Fukujo and the boy is Fukusuke. Many lucky objects that start with "fu" are featured, such as the "fukujuso" or pheasant's eye plant that the girl is holding, a "fude" or writing brush just above her head, a "fugu" or puffer fish in the water, and Mt. Fuji on the sail. A charming design.
