Thanks for the info. As i understand he is one of the characters in the kanadehon chushingura. I have found the back ground story of amakawaya gihei on www.kabuki21.com
Gihei's display of loyalty towards the rônin does not go unnoticed, for the policemen are in fact Yuranosuke and some of his men in disguise. Yuranosuke, amazed at Gihei's determination and splendid character, apologizes for the harsh treatment, but explains that such a test was necessary to allay the fears of his men. Deeply gracious, Gihei invites the samurai in for food before they begin their long journey to Kamakura.
So i think this print depicts this moment. When he invites the samurai in for food.
Thats wy i think the pot is there.
