秋の部。目黒川の北側の台地は富士見の名所であった。ここにある茶屋は富士見茶屋と呼ばれたが、江戸時代初めに三代将軍家光が鷹狩の折に立ち寄り老夫婦が歓待したことから、爺々が茶屋の名でも親しまれた。 – 藤澤紫Ｋ

By 1911, purchased by William Sturgis Bigelow (b. 1850–d. 1926), Boston [see note 1]; 1911, gift of Bigelow to the MFA. (Accession Date: January 19, 2005)
 Much of Bigelow's collection of Asian art was formed during his residence in Japan between 1882 and 1889, although he also made acquisitions in Europe and the United States. Bigelow deposited many of these objects at the MFA in 1890 before donating them to the Museum's collection at later dates.
