This Ukiyo-e print two kōshi-jōro (high ranking courtesan) contemplating on a writing a letter.
Would it be a letter to home, a lover or a desirable client?

The movie Sukuran describes life inside Yoshiwara as a courtesan, the rivalry, survival and love.

An old wine jar, one that would have been use at home, with the wine taken out from a ladle.

I particularly like the glazing on this jar, there seems to be a metallic gloss that is similar to the shine of a car’s body and of course the beige brush stroke on the lip of the jar.  Both of these seems to enhance on the texture of the wine.
