This is the left side of an 1868 diptych by Gyokusai 玉斎 (active late 1860s). MFA Boston has both sheets (11.34998.45a-b); they give the title as "The Best Hotpot in the World" (Yo no naka mochi yori tanoshimi nabe)「世の中持寄楽ミ鍋(よのなかもちよりたのしみなべ)」. MFA says theirs is "from an album of satirical prints", though I do not have a clear understanding of the nature of the satire.
