Tokyo Geisha with an Insect Cage 1905 by Blue Ruin1 on Flickr.Via Flickr:
I love her hairstyle and the beautifully made insect cage.
Genroku style came into fashion amongst Tokyo Geisha around 1905, in imitation of the dress and hairstyles that were in vogue during the Genroku period (1688 – 1703).
An artistic rendition of the same Geisha in this exact pose appears on a 1907 poster for the Osaka Branch of the Mitsukoshi Gofukuten Department Store, with the insect cage replaced by a spray of chrysanthemums.
