    I think it's very nice, and the long kimono folding on the floor around her because she is wearing socks, without her high sandals is charming.
    Could be an apprentice geisha, she looks very young, and there is something fresh and simple about her pulled bunned hairdo. Glad you are still around to get this message. lisa

    These type of photographs have been popular from the late 19th century into the 20th century.

    It is hard to date w/o more information. Additional photos (front and BACK, markings) out of the frame my yield more clues to the date.

    If the frame is original to the piece, I would put this as early 20th century.
