Young craftsmen work on vases in the cloisonne workshop of Namikawa Yasuyuki, using small tools at individual tables. Namikawa is observing their work from behind. Many small bottles of paint and chemicals are visible on the shelves behind the glass doors in the background. This may have been taken by H. G. Ponting in 1904.
