It's a design from a series by Keisai Eisen entitled "Imayō musume sankyoku" 今様娘三曲, which I think could be roughly translated as "Instrumental Trio of Modern Girls". The publisher was Izumiya Ichibei 和泉屋市兵衛, and the scant references I can find to the series suggest a publication date in the 1830s.
The only other image from this series I've found is another impression of this same design featuring koto; presumably there were other designs featuring shamisen and kokyū.
