This is a very fine surimono depicting a lobster (ebi) and cup, designed by Ryűryűkyo Shinsai (柳々居辰斎, 1764-1823?), signed 'Shinsai' (辰斎) at the right. Privately commissioned c. 1820 on the occassion of a new year for the Taikogawa poetry club in Edo, red seal of the group upper right and poems by three different poets above.

Another copy is in the RISD Museum and can be viewed here:
