Origata Tehon of Kikuchi Fujiwara no Takehide, 1697
 
The Metropolitan Museum in New York has in its collection a scrapbook album of tsutsumi, together with some loose items, about which the Met says, 'According to the inscriptions, this set of models served as the initiation into the art of origata for Kikuchi Fujiwara no Takehide by an Ogasawara master, and is dated the third month of 1697.'

The full album can be accessed online at https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/78428
