Young woman with a tobacco pipe
A young woman kneels on tatami mats whilst holding a tobacco pipe. She is wearing a simple blue kimono and a yellow and pink 'obi' (Japanese sash). She is leaning on a wooden brazier with a bell-shaped teapot on it.
The picture was taken indoors in the photographer's studio. A paulownia chest stands behind her with a tea tray and cups on it. On the right-hand side of the picture is a white screen decorated with small vertical pictures and a hand fan.
The photograph has been hand tinted with great care; although the colours are slightly faded. The girl's lips and cheeks have been delicately coloured, as well as the props around her. The rest of the photograph has been left in black and white.
