F110. Ono School Iron Tsuba
F110. Iron sukashi tsuba. 5.8 x 5.7 x .6 cm. The nakago ana is .9 x 2 cm. This tsuba is a perfect sho to a dai that sold from the Holbrook tsuba (see H109). About the larger tsuba Skip said, “Ono. Roku moko, Owari Prov. Early 17th c.” I see no reason not to say the same about this tsuba. Condition is excellent and there is what appears to be a shallow sword cut on the rim (see the 4th picture). $225.
