hi all, anyone have an idea about this mei ? I was thinking at first glance Iehira or Ietsune or similar, but I am not sure about the Ie. It has been suggested it is 雪平

Cheers

Rich

thanks mate. Yeah it is probably most likely, though I have no record for the guy as yet.

Cheers

Rich

Interesting design, it puts me in mind of Akasaka sensibilities.

Rich -
In the Sosho dictionary it is easy to see the differences between Ie and Un - the "Hira" is troubling because of the apparent lack of a single stroke. I am not sure if I cannot see it for the photo or this may be another kanji...

Looks like it may belong to "Uhei" 宇平

This signature belongs to Myôchin Shigenobu (明珍重信), H 08417.0.

cheers
