My friend has just received these two fine abumi

Both are signed but each with a varying clarity hence a few views and for the connoisseurs two full views

Any help with the mei would be appreciated and any extra info is a bonus

Hence,  “Kashū Jū Yosaemon Jou Morisada saku”

Ironically, I couldn’t find “右“?

Yeah, I can't find it either. Maybe its not supposed to be there, and it should be just 与三衛門 (Yosaemon). 

 

Seems weird without 右, but it sure looks absent from both examples.

There is, I think, a book on Kaga abumi makers.  I have a pair of Kaga abumi and I should dust them off and put the mei here...

 

BaZZa.
