Recommended Posts

Today i got this nice Sacred Treasure - after the Buy i saw its hallmarked with the Katakana

What do you think in which period this sacred treasure was made?

 

 

Thanks for looking

Yes, that case is original. I don't have a Sacred Treasure with this particular hallmark, but I've got a Rising Sun with one:

I believe the Rising Sun to be a Meiji-era piece, but I'm going to guess that your Sacred Treasure is a late-Meiji to early-Taisho era piece.

Thanks for showing your rising sun. I didnt Saw an other hallmark like this. 

That would be fantastic If the medal were from the late meiji / early taisho period :cheers:

I think this treasure came from (approximately) 1910s-1920s period of time ;)

There were three main private manufacturers of the orders up until 1929:

Hirata Haruyuki (平田春行) Namikawa Sousuke (濤川惣助) Ohki Souho (大木宗保) 

The 'na' hallmark most likely belonged to Namikawa.  

If you have my medals newsletter of 2012, I wrote about this in issue #7 and included a short bio of Namikawa.
