C233. 3rd Yamakichibei Tsuba
C233. Iron sukashi tsuba signed Yamakichibei. 7.3 x 7.7 x .3 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.8 cm. The consignor of this tsuba tells me it is 3rd Yamakichibei; works for me. The sukashi is cloves and the finish is yakite (almost melted). Prominent tekkotsu on the rim and condition is excellent. $400.
