Object Description
From Steeped in History: The Art of Tea (pg.121):
"This woodblock print was created during the Meiji period, about twenty years following the collapse of the Edo government. It reflects a sense of nostalgia for the sophisticated culture that existed among the families of high-ranked Edo period samurai. The woman seated at the left, a member of the samurai class, prepares tea for her guests."
