It's the right sheet of a triptych design by Toyohara Kunichika, entitled 東京名誉 美人揃 -- I think this is read "Tōkyō meiyo bijin-soroi", and perhaps translatable as "Assorted Honorable Women of Tokyo".

The only image of the full triptych I can find is from an online auction listing:

Also, Österreichisches Museum für Angewandte Kunst has an impression of the left sheet:

The publisher was Yorozuya Magobei 万屋孫兵衛.

I cannot find much of a clue as to what the publication date might have been; according to Marks the publisher seal was in use from 1865 to 1883, but that's all I know for sure.
