Hi guys,

I can make out Higo and I'm sure I'll make a mess of the rest.  Help please.

Thank you,  Grey

肥後

勘四郎初代

真鍮地

??彫

 

Higo

Kanshiro, the first (shodai)

Shinchū-ji

?? hori (bori)

 

The two with the question marks are killing me. Can't figure out what they could be. I thought the first one was 鹿 or 唐 but neither of those fit with the final 彫 (I think). 

Usually we see something like 高彫 or some such.... driving me nuts. 

 

edit: maybe 唐草

but... feels weird to me.

Whew - from looking at Kanshiro's other works, which feature a lot of karakusa, I felt I was close... but I was expecting karakusa-no-zu or something like that.
