Ressei menpo request informations


Recommended Posts

I share with you an menpo from my collection for which I require your help.

it is an unsigned Edo period ressei menpo, very expressive of which I do not know the school.09B4FD54-E3D2-447C-AA95-3A300C052216.thumb.jpeg.c331c339d5d368514ee88986e83301b1.jpeg

In natural iron, it has a very prominent upper lip (the mustache is missing) the teeth are silver lacquered and it has a wide sweat running hole and a otayori.


What is your opinion about the school and the period (early to late Edo?).

If you know of other similar menpo?

Thank you in advance.

Bevor you sell it to Simon, let's try me approach your questions ;-)


First, it's a quite nice me-no-shita-men. The chin part reminds me of some Mito works, but I need to do a little homework first.....


Will come back to this asap!

I couldn't find a similar reference piece (actually no surprice). So all we can say for the time beeing is, that it's most likely a Myôchin work of the mid/late Edo period.

Sorry can't be more specific....
