H375. Kyo Shoami Tsuba, Momoyama. Holbrook
H375. Iron sukashi tsuba out of the Holbrook collection. 7.5 x 7.6 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .9 x 2.5 cm. Skip’s tag reads, “Kyo Shoami, Momoyama period, Spring love”. By spring love, Skip is referring to the 2 hats and a flower: if he says so. There are faint traces of gold nunome and condition is excellent. I think this is a fine tsuba. $750.
