I am tempted to buy Sailor 1911 Maki-e Momiji. I found one online for £400 which I think is a great price if its real maki-e. On the other hand, if its modern maki-e it would be a bit of a ripoff.
Does anyone know what type of makie it is?

I think there has been more than one Momiji 1911L over the years so a link would be helpful. But if it is the one Im thinking of that was released several years ago along with the dragonfly, butterfly, and one or two others - it is hand applied maki-e and not stenciled. Further, I think it is signed by Kousen Oshita who has a workshop with at least three artists working under his direction so think of it more as a collective rather than the individual artists signature. Oshita has done maki-e for Sailor, Pilot, Platinum, and Visconti among others. I have two examples of his work and they are beautiful.

Thanks. Oshita designed this maki-e. It’s advertised as Sailor Maki-e MOMIJI, AUTUMN LEAVES,
10-4052-440 is the product code

I have found one on eBay for £233. That’s very cheap for real maki-e
