The design belongs to a series entitled "Azuma sugata" 東すかた ("Eastern Figures"), published by Kokkeidō 滑稽堂 (a.k.a. Akiyama Buemon).

The signature is 美宝 ("Biho?"), and I can find no information on this artist.

The Ritsumeikan ARC database catalogs 12 designs from this series (perhaps the whole series?) -- here is the link for their impression of the design you have:

(Click links for artist name or series title to see the rest.)

MFA Boston has one design from this series:

Kokkeidō published a series designed by Ikeda Terukata with a very similar presentation around 1910 (per MFA), so that would be my best guess for a publication date for this series.
