    Mempo information

    Its ok what period - modern?
  6. Went for £600.00 so will never know
  7. it will probably cost me £250 if I want to find out by buying it, auction is at other end of the country and so driving there to view is out of question.
  8. its in a local auction - that is all they have provided, wondered if it is worth a punt

    Mempo information

    Bought some books on subject and still no idea how to date or identify this mempo, any thoughts would be great
  10. Any help with translation appreciated
  11. Now I have ordered in lots of books on the basis of expanding my knowledge base, on the Mempo I can see that there are distinct styles and designs that are attributed to some of the highly regarded armourers. However I can't see that there is a style or design (beyond a specific armourer) that would link a particular Mempo to a date range other than some of the very early pieces. Are there stylistics features and designs that were only introduced after a certain period. I have attached the image of the one I have as I have looked a 100's of examples and I can't place it. It is the Hana that is throwing me just the shape of it. Real or fake I have no idea? Any guidance as to rules of what to look for would be gratefully received, I am guess it is by way of building a mental encyclopedia of other works and referencing them.

  13. Has this been altered and modified so heavily so as to be nice looking but not really of any value? I can absolutely see from the pictures above how the armour has then been lacquer, but do I understand it is the Kiri that are really out of place or very recent modifications?
