K150. Great Iron Tsuba by Choshu Tomoyuki
K150. Iron tsuba signed Choshu Hagi Ju Nyudo Tomoyuki (the final Kanji, yuki, has been smooshed by mounting; I get this character from the former owner’s tag). 7.3 x 7.9 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .7 x 2.6 cm. This tsuba is so cool! Perfectly crisp carving shows 2 large ships and a small boat with 3 sailors on the front and another small boat with passengers below a mountain on the back. The fret work surround on both sides is an added bonus. Condition is, once again, excellent. $395.
