Haynes Index H 04070.0 $400.00
"Iron plate carved as two large beans (edamame) with stems and leaves, in pure Satsuma Oda school style. The face is signed: 'Choshu ju Masakata'. See H 04070.0. There is a good chance that this artist is the same as the Masakata H 04069.0 who lived in Satsuma about the same time. There were a number of artists who lived or worked in both of these provinces, and this might be one of them. When we can compare the signatures of these two artists we should know if they are the same person." (Haynes)
