Japanese Kabuki actor print by Toyokuni Antique German Theo Stroefer postcardJapanese Kabuki actor print by Toyokuni Antique German Theo Stroefer postcard

This Japanese chromolithograph postcard was published by Theodore Stroefer of Nuremburg, Bavaria, circa 1903. I can't read Japanese characters but from an extensive online search, I believe this is a Kabuki actor print by the artist Kunisada, also known as Toyokuni III.* According to a Japanese museum I found online, this is a scene from a play produced in 1847.
This card is unused and aside from minute wear on the corner tips, it is in overall mint condition. Size: about 3.5 by 5.5 inches.
This card is Serie 398 (8 Dess.) No. 2.
Number 5 in this series is listed separately here: http://www.rubylane.com/item/274812-7569/Antique-Japanese-Chromolithograph-Postcard-two

*From Wikipedia: "Utagawa Kunisada (Japanese: 歌川 国貞; also known as Utagawa Toyokuni III (三代歌川豊国); 1786 – 12 January 1865) was the most popular, prolific and financially successful designer of ukiyo-e woodblock prints in 19th-century Japan."
