Anyone have insight into this style/school? Assuming Edo?

Any translator have to get anything from the NBTHK Tokubetsu Kicho paper?

Thanks Brian, I can see some resemblance with the wire and bead work, quite interesting!

Owner says Filgree/arabesque but curious what the NBTHK reads.

Your referring to something like this? Wire work looks a bit similar without the beads but not sure about that given the rest of the matching fitments which I dont think would receive enamel like a tsuba would?

Overall very cool.

Thanks for the kind words! From the incredibly intricate wire/bead work to the high quality samegawa, detailed dragon menuki, well done Ito and saya, I am very happy with this ebay purchase  :) Kogatana blade aside(wish I could make out the mei), there isnt a scratch, ding or blemish to be found.

Mike there is a similar style guard in the Metropolitan Museum no. 91.1.807 it has the same raised wire effect with some very minimal enamel spots. - I was going through my book, 'Tsuba in the Metropolitan Museum of Art Vol. 1' and came across it on page 64.

The paper is on its side and the description is in the fold Mike, but it says 鐔 菊唐草図 赤銅地 ‘Tsuba Kiku Karakusa Zu. Shakudo Ji’
