Physical description:

Osakaprints.com said of this print: "Although the actor's name and role are inscribed on this print, the play, theater, and date remain unconfirmed. One play we have seen suggested is Osanago no Katakiuchi (A child's revenge: 幼稚子敵討) performed at the Onishi Theater in 3 or 4/1826, but so far we have not been able to verify the role and actor in that particular production. The suggested range of years (1826-1828) derives from the style of printing and the appearance of the actor Tamizô."
