Good morning,

 

Could you please help translating the following signature from a tsuba I just received ?

 

IMG_20190821_113915.jpg

 

This is my first try at deciphering a signature and I'm not sure where to lookup the kanjis or what the methodology is, so if a member could kindly provide some pointers, that would be much appreciated !

 

Thank you very much in advance  :bowdown:

 

Edit: Identified BUSHU (武州) JU (住) MASA (正) YOSHI (義) (KAO ?) by using http://www.jssus.org..._tosogumei.html. Is this correct ?!?

François,

that seems correct!

Start reading on the left side: BUSHU no JU MASAYOSHI. You can find most of the KANJI (no plural) for NIHONTO and TOSOGU in the 'Research' section.

Compare  https://collections....g/objects/10017


Regards,

Jean C.

The signature is indeed the same as the one from your link.

 

Thank you Jean for your help thumbs%20up.gif
