Comments - Charming Eisho portrait of the beauty Shiratsuyu of the Wakanaya Teahouse holding a small glass bowl with a goldfish in it. She smiles happily as she looks ahead, dressed in layers of patterned kimono. Her hair is pulled back into a large bun, adorned with many hairpins, a comb, and a red ribbon. The background features a repeated motif of rabbits. Lovely soft color and fine line work in the hairstyle. A beautiful design
