Tsuba mei translation help

Recommended Posts

I need help translating the signature on the tsuba and reading the kinzogan seal from next tsuba.

The letters on the tsuba are part of the design, rather than a mei. 

七十二才雪舟筆

 

Nanajūni-sai Sesshū hitsu

 

Sesshu drew this at age 72.

It is (presumably) an homage to the ink painter Sesshū. The letters inside the cartouche also say "Sesshū", in seal script

 

The mei inside the gold cartouche on the top tsuba is 乗 (something -jō)

I'd look through a list of the Gotō artists that used the kanji character 乗 to see if any look promising.

I think we can rule out 宗、栄、壱、謙、廉、覚、顕、程. These are the obvious ones...
