Did a search for crescent moon three stars and came up with few options, Dont think it was for Muslim flag or sign of the Devil back in Edo days.

 

anyway i see the connection in the skies in the fall? fig someone here might want to bid on it.

i do equally not think this piece is antique.

 

Akao school Tsuba generally do show a strong symbolism and coherence to the cut out sukashi motif...

 

this "point" got seemingly overexaggeratet by this modern "Hyper-Hyper taste" dubious sellers from Japan do hope for.....

 

not old-

I love the design though. Maybe it is a little too meat and "fresh" and without signs of mounting to be old..but if I found an old one in that style I would grab it. Really like the style

FWIW, I think this design works better on a round mimi than the book one.

What book is that in?  I know I have seen it, but can't remember the book.  I like that one a lot and while the shape is unusual, I find it pleasing.

I like the celestial theme, and thought of one other you might like, though I am sure you have seen it as It belonged to R Turner at one time.  It was a celestial theme, but no stars.  It depicted the sun, moon and a star, called Sankou no Zugura.

Brian beside it being new i like it as well, i think it would work well on iaido or cutter,( helping with weight) and one wouldn't have to worry about filing to fit...lol

 

Ed i remember RTs tsuba i pined for it forever  then lost track after Brian took over the board, next time it resurfaced to me it had been sold....cry smile.

and not sure of book, its form auction pix's

 

in my feeble attempt to communicate  i was wondering what connection in Japanese lore the moon and three stars played thanks for the five star image!

Or you could just wait for someone to buy it..handle it for a few years, add sekigane.....let it rust a bit..and *poof* you have a nice antique and genuine one :glee:
Joking aside, I bet there are far more of these sort of "antiques" around than we would like to know.
But then again...in 100 years they will be legit antiques anyways..

Lie back on a warm summer night and look straight up. You’ll see three bright stars: Vega, Deneb, and Altair. These mark the corners of the “Summer Triangle” and are your guides to the three constellations of Lyra, Cygnus, and Aquila.
