M229. Ko Kinko or Ko Mino Tsuba
M229. Small kinko tsuba. 5.7 x 6.5 x .3 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .7 x 2.4 cm. Based on the work I think this qualifies as Ko-kinko; based on the subject it could fit into Ko-Mino also. A diamond shaped field, awash with chrysanthemum, sits inside a single chrysanthemum blossom worked in fine tsuchime. Elegant and charming; condition is excellent. $495.
