Note:  Although this toy print depicts an
Oshichi-kichisamono play such as
Sh˘chikubai Yushima no Kakegaku
(松 竹梅湯島掛額), the exact title of
the play in this print is not known at
this time.  Shikan V did portray
Oshichi in a November 1901 Kabuki-
za production of Sh˘chikubai Yushima no
Kakegaku, but the cast was otherwise
different.
