  1. During the Edo period, Japanese people interpreted akikusa-zu as a scene in which autumn grass in the field emerged in the darkness of the night under the moonlight. It suggests "野晒 Nozarashi - a weather beaten skull". https://twitter.com/yakozen777/status/1230979390520999937
  2. It looks like a casting, but it's fun items. I'm likely to bid involuntarily. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/t754085798
  3. I'm sorry to trouble you again, Dale-san. I turned off the translation function of browser and posted in English. I don't know why this happens. If you find it again, please leave it as is Japanese. I will correct it myself.
  4. Speaking of the Umetada school, there was a person who won the Tsuba for over $ 10,000 in June. It shows the high evaluation of Sumie-zogan.
  5. 津尋芳(1721-1762)江戸時代中期の装剣金工。 享保(kiyou-ho)6年生まれ。阿波徳島(阿波徳島)藩の抱え工野村正道(野村政道)の門人。野村一派でもっともすぐれた工人といわれる。花鳥、植物図の縁頭、小柄、鱗などを製作した。宝暦(hou-reki)12年6月死去。42歳。江戸出身。通称は八左衛門(Hachizaemon) 。 研究書:梶村茂著 『津尋后』 1966、自費出版
  6. "Akikusa-zu" is said to be the theme of Rimpa school, which is a pictorial expression of a passage of "Laozi" "中秋良夜瓢風驟雨" Meaning that unnatural events do not last long . However, I don't know if it is the same expression in Mino School.
  7. According to an ancient Chinese collection of short stories, "The Shuyiji" (A.D.460-508), "A snake grown in muddy water becomes a Mizuchi (rain dragon) in 500 years." In Japan, it brings the blessing of rain to agricultural gods, especially rice cultivation. https://www.facebook.com/imamiyajinja/photos
  8. The hitu-ana in the Ita-tsuba is set by the user as needed. That has already been revealed by Mr. Sasano. Still, I'm a little surprised by chance. 墨絵象嵌(sumie-zougan)and 片笄櫃(kata-kogaihitu) may be referring to the Umetada School. https://blog.goo.ne.jp/tsuba_001/e/ddd37030c3dfca86d88a8543b5f20666
  9. Another one. Items with hairlines on Seppadai may be suspicious. As a trace of castings polished with a power polishing machine. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/x724588152
  10. I'm slightly skeptical of this product only, but it might be wrong because of the image reproducibility of the example.
  11. Unusually, some good iron tsuba were exhibited at the start of $20 or $30 this month. As the auction went on, the Japanese fold due to lack of funds, and it seemed that the buyers for overseas had won the bid. They may represent dealers, not collectors, and if so, they will show up before you. It is not wasteful to know the purchase price. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/x718280108 https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/j668122388 https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/d463296422 https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/l620180717 https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/n420517313 https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/e445925646
  12. For Aug. These are staple products. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/h493681754 https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/o415623129 https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/j667331008 https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/p780233857 This tsuba was sold for 386,000JPY in February. Maybe it was a failure at April shinsa. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/auction/b484604837 https://twitter.com/yakozen777/status/1230978756384182272/photo/1 There were over 100 large fires in Edo during the Tokugawa era, which were hit once every 2-3 years. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/s760387501 Buyers ask about the material of the tsuba, but the seller doesn't answer clearly. https://page.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/j642393537
  13. Both are great work! I heard that "Katakiri ha-dukuri" is difficult to heat-treat, and that high technology is necessary to finish it without breaking "hamon".
  14. There will be one shortage. Is "Umegane" made of lead? If so, easy to come off.
  15. Part of the zodiac? Leo,Virgo, Libra,Scorpio,Sagittarius?
