I'm sooooo excited about this one.  By Crescent Shop's exchange rate, this cost me about $8.70:

The eagle-eyed will recognize her uchikake from Tsukasa-tayu's website and the Tayu: Kamigata no Sekai book (it appears twice in the B/W photo section in back).

It's a lithograph (I think) of an oiran no dochu in the Yoshiwara.  I don't have any scans of the postcards handy, but these ladies also show up in oiran postcards from the mid Teens.  Here's one of them:
