Hi Chris --

My suggested attribution is the same as yours -- Utagawa Kunifusa 歌川国総 -- with the caveat that I'm not 100% confident that I can reliably distinguish a Kunifusa signature from a Kunitsuna I signature.

It looks like other text on the prints often includes "東雲明行", or sometimes "明行" with other kanji -- I do not know how to read or translate that.

Some other images of prints from the series:

Also, I notice that the Kunifusa sample I have in my signature database comes from a print in your collection which seems like it possibly belongs to the same series as well.

Best,
-A
