Objects with calligraphy. There is an elaborate footed stand on the right. The base of the stand is black and brown. There are three white projections coming up form the base with three pieces of pink coral on top. On top of that is a potted plant (Adonis) with yellow flowers. There are two books to the left. One has a pink and gray cover and the other has a beige cover. They both have black rectangles on them. Poem by Nishotei.
Possibly dated to 1821.
