About This Image

A traditionally dressed, older family sit outdoors on a platform. Behind them, a Chinese calligraphy wall-hanging is displayed, possibly a rubbing. The two men have "chomage" - topknots, which suggests that they are Samurai. The elder man has a sword, which suggests that this was a merchant family, as merchants were allowed to carry weapons.

Case lid missing.
