It's a name

松浦安

Matsuura Yasu-?

 

Family name of Matsuura, given name of Yasu-something. Maybe Yasueimon 安右衛門 using abbreviated forms of the last two kanji. Matsuura is a fairly common last name, found all over Japan. Maybe slightly more prevalent in the west, around Hiroshima.

Looks like a Kyu Gunto tassel.

Also, show us the writing at the top portion of the tag...might help us figure it out.
