一清刻 - Issei-koku - Engraved by Issei
一清 - Issei
Apart from the name "Issei" I couldn't find any information on the artist online.
It is not same with the famous Meiji - Taisho era
metal artist Hasegawa Issei 長谷川一清，however,
some auction sites on the net present the works of this Issei as the works of the famous Hasegawa Issei of the Meiji - Taisho era. The signatures and seals are entirely different. I think this Issei was active in the 1970-80s.
