The "paired" Nanushi censor seals date the original publication to 1847-1852; see: http://www.japanesepotterymarks.info/censor_seals.php

The artist here is Kunisada, signing "Kōchōrō Toyokuni ga".

The text next to the actor appears to read 「早ノ勘平」(usually spelled 「早野勘平」) , which is the name "Hayano Kanpei", the name of a character in the play "Kanadehon Chūshingura" ("The Treasury of Loyal Retainers"; a.k.a. "The Forty-Seven Ronin").
