Label Text:
While the right margin on this impression has been trimmed, another more complete impression is held by the Honolulu Museum of Art (acc. no. 22908); in that version, the double nanushi seals of the censors, as well as the date seal, are fully visible. The nanushi seals indicate inspections by Fukushima Saburōemon and Muramatsu Genroku, with a date of approval of the second intercalary month of Kaei 5, equivalent to 1852.
