Hi all -- have recently acquired a print with no artist name or title that I'm hoping someone will have some ideas on.

I see that the print depicts Ichikawa Omezō (the first, I presume) as Kobayashi no Asahina. I've found prints depicting Omezō as Asahina dated to 1804/1 and 1822/5, and a mention of an 1814/1 performance of the dance "Shōfudatsuki Kongen Kusazuri", but I don't know whether this print went with any of these three performances or some other one.

The other Omezō Asahina prints I've found:

Any ideas appreciated!
