Hi Tom - fun piece :)

Osaka school subject. You'll find artists like Hidemasa or Anraku signing these models.

I've handled a few over the years (I think Lempertz had one go through two years back), one lovely ivory version I nearly bought from a dealer, but alas, now I can find no photos.

Please find an example (poor image) from the MCI in ivory, signed Anraku.
