Dear  NMB Members:

 

I would appreciate any help the members can give me in translating the maker's mei on this pair of daish fuchi, and any information you may have regarding this artist. The last two kanji appear to be Masayoshi, but I am not sure of the first two. The finish appears to be shakudo or shibuichi. I have the two tsuka that came with these fuchi, but the kashira is missing on both handles. II would be interested in knowing the likely school these came from.

 

Regards,

Bill E. Sheehan (Yoshimichi)

Looking at this further, the first two kanji look like Ishiguro, for an artist's name of "Ishiguro Masayoshi." Is this correct? I wonder if he is the student of Masatsune? Thanks for any info.

Hello,

 

I could be wrong, but would agree with Ishiguro Masayoshi. I see one listed in Markus' Meikan of sword fittings signing similarly without kao. Theme and quality look fitting, shall we say.

20180903_105949.jpg You and Franco have got the translation, it does indeed read Ishiguro Masayoshi.  Big name, important artist, often copied....I have included and example of a papered signature for your comparison.

Thanks so much for the help on the translation. I especially appreciate the papered example of the signature.
