Very early print, with the most earliest Watanabe seal for this print. Perfect impression and colours. At the back side's margins neatly removed remains of an old mounting, at lower margin small part of thinner paper, otherwise perfect condition.
Very rare print from a planned series with twelve different pictures of children. From the twelve pictures only two had been realized.
