K145. Choshu Tomohisa
K145. This tsuba has been marked sold for a few weeks while I’ve been waiting for payment. The buyer didn’t deliver so here it is again.
Iron tsuba signed Choshu Hagi Ju Tomohisa Saku. 7.3 x 7.6 x .45 cm at the slightly raised rim. The nakago hitsu-ana is.7 x 2.6 cm. Murakami, in his book Choshu no Tsuba, lists Tomohisa as working in the 2nd half of the 18th century. Very crisp, clean carving in excelent condition: there’s a lot to like here. $495.
