M228. Elaborate Kinko Tsuba by Ishiguro Mitsuharu
M228. Shakudo tsuba with Samurai everywhere. 7 x 7.5 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.6 cm. This is signed Ishiguro Mitsuharu with a kao at the bottom of the seppa-dai. Mitsuharu worked in late Edo, in a variety of styles I’m told. This is Soten style and quite impressive. Condition is amazing; I see no damage to mention. $595.
