Japanese Edo period woodblock print by Toyokuni III (also known as Kunisada) featuring a beauty serving tea to another beauty who is resting in a palanquin smoking a pipe from Act 6 of "Chushingura e-kyodai" (Matching Pictures of Chushingura) dated 1859. "Chushingura" is also known as the "Tale of the Forty-seven Ronin." The censor's seal and the seal of the publisher, Moriya Jihei, are at the lower left portion of the print. The signature of the artist (signed "Toyokuni ga" in a red cartouche with yellow snow) is also located at the lower left. Standard vertical oban print measuring 14"V x 9 3/4"H. Very good impression quality and color with lacquer highlights. The baren marks and image are clearly visible on the back. Not backed. There is old finely restored wormage at the right (on the roof of the palanquin to the right of the beauty's head) and at the top right corner. There is minor wear at the lower left, slight wrinkling of the paper, and slightly trimming of the edges.
