H238. Edo Tosho
H238. Iron with shakudo plug in the hitsu ana. 8.6 x 8.7 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana measures 1 x 2.9 cm. This tsuba came from the Holbrook collection. Skip’s tag says, “Edo Tosho, mother & 2 baby bats & flower, early Edo.” Again, a very dense plate with subtle tekkotsu on the rim and a faint mokume on the faces. Excellent condition. $145.
