  • Catalogue text

    Fret-pierced with nine badges irregularly disposed between the narrow rim and the seppadai and ryōhitsu; two are in negative silhouette, a chrysanthemum lozenge above and a clump of bamboo-grass below (the latter for Mori of Akō); among the rest are the cognisances of Sō, Shimadzu, Hachisuka, Nambu, Matsura, and Matsumaye - all very important diamiō families.
