This egg is ceramic and because of its raised banding I believe to to be Satsuma, however the two women on both sides of the egg are not typical. There is an incense burner sending up smoke, the sitting woman is smoking from a strange pipe while the woman standing is holding a fan, to perhaps fan away the cloud of smoke surrounding her. If anyone has seen this scene on an egg before I would be very interested in finding out more about it. Thanks.
