Can someone tell me what these are called?


Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me the correct name for these wooden wall plaques? Are they Tanzaku ... or something else?

I have two of these and I believe there are another ten designs, as I have managed to find images of un-mounted pieces [all made from fired pottery] two missing.

I realize they are not strictly Tosogu but all the designs are in tsuba form. It is difficult to research something without a correct name - [please don't say junk, it is self-evident]

Ray - worse than fake, they are not even trying! :laughing:

Just interested in what the display is called and what it might be for? Year of the rabbit, tiger, monkey etc. or birth sign? 

They must have been made in commercial quantities but were they made over a twelve year period or just in one year?
