Shakudo tsuba with nanako --> School?

Recommended Posts

Hi Gents, this shakudo tsuba with nanako and summer plants design, in the shape of a "tachi " tsuba but with Hitsu Ana (therefore it is not a tachi tsuba) is puzzling me.

 

Having some very small gold dots inserted, it could make me think having a goto influence. But I doubt Goto family did such tsuba, looking that way.

 

What are you views?

 

Thank you

My guess would be early Edo Mino workmanship - neither the nanako nor the carving do look like Gotō to me.

 

A really nice tsuba!

 

Best

Thank you Chris and Michael for you interest. I take Chris option for an early Edo Edo Mino one. Trying to find similar ones on the net I was surprised,to face an "empty box". Does someone can share similar tsuba pictures ?

 

Thank you

Thank you Sala Marcos for your insight. My tsuba is carved and their is no dai seppa which are  separately added. As a conclusion there is a large tendency to consider this tsuba as Mino.
