The signature appears to read "香蝶樓國貞画" ("Kōchōrō Kunisada ga") and the first part of the label text reads "五渡亭國貞筆" ("Gototei Kunisada hitsu"); both of these were signatures used by Kunisada I. The bottom text on the label reads something along the lines of "大正期機栻刷版画", which I *think* means something like "Taishō period reproduction". (The Taishō period lasted from 1912 to 1926.)

I'm unfamiliar with the design itself. Perhaps it's from a painting that was not intended to be a print design?
