Description: This print is included in a set of 50 prints called "Ukiyo Ekagami," a collection of various artists and genres, which was probably a reproduction in the pre-war period.

The two standing beauties are laughing behind the back of a third one who has fallen asleep on her knees while knitting, we can see she still has some thread in her mouth. Judging by the title, we can guess that they have played a practical joke on her. Are they the ones to blame for sticking a white cloth pending on a stick inside her hair knot? It seems they can’t wait for her to wake up to see her reaction ...


There are slight creases on this print.
