Label Text:
As a privately commissioned work ('surimono'), this print bears no identifying markings aside from the artist's signature and lower-right, which reads "Kunihiro ga" ('drawn by Kunihiro'). The publisher is most likely Tenmaya Kihei (active ca. 1816–1860), of the Osaka-based firm "Kinkadō."
