Comments - Lovely scene from the tale of Prince Genji, the Country Genji, standing outside a garden gate reading a letter. He looks up from the long message with a frown as he stares at the fellow crouching at right, who grins back at him cheekily. A kamuro or courtesan's child apprentice tugs on Mitsuuji's hand, pulling him toward the garden gate where a beauty waits for him. An attractive design with the blossoming plum tree framing the night sky. Include faint embossing on the letter and white kimono trim.
