    Style of engraved work ?

    Hi everyone,
    I have acquired a German luger that is engraved and I have been researching the possible source of the craftsman who did the work. I am leaning towards the engraver being one that may have studied under Shiro Ogawa simply because to me,the design pattern seems consistent with his style. I may be way off base in my assessment given the fact that I have no experience with the history and disciplines of the many artisans and their work. So I'm turning to the pros.
    The gun is a 1915 DWM,all matching with genuine ivory grips and a matching hand tooled leather holster.
    Any thoughts,opinions or comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Could be Ogawa but lots of Japanese engravers do "English" scroll similar to that. It is very difficult to tell the work of one Japanese engraver from another.
