Tsuba with sago palms


  • Catalogue text

    Surface similar to that of 307 [EAX.10307], but with rather more hollows; each face modelled with low rocks, amid which grow young sago-palms, touched with gold nunome.

    Signed: Kataoka Tadahiro [Japanese text].

    This and the previous guard, even apart from the signatures, are obviously closely related, but the artists are otherwise unrecorded. A note by H. L. Joly reads: "Shoami style" and "See Gilbertson 2". Wada (p.105) quotes under Chōshū (kawaji) a Kataoka Yoichi-yemon Tanesuke of Iwakuni (undated).
