Sixteen women and children,on a veranda, engaged in various domestic pursuits, are set in a scene within a scene. The 3 dimensional landscape, with flowers, trees, and a meandering stream, draw the viewer toward the mountain in the background. The wisteria cascading from the roof, and the screen with flowers in the foreground add even more to a beautiful setting with much detail. 3 butterflies can be seen near the wisteria. The intricate geometric boarder with various rondels on the cobalt blue background is just wonderful. The reverse has the signature of Suizan who was reputed to be an artist working for Kinkosan. This plate is in excellent condition with no chips,damages, scratches,or repairs. The gold is in amazingly good condition with no wear.
