Q197. Yamagane Fuchi Kashira, Quite nice
Q197. Fuchi Kashira of yamagane (raw copper). The inside dimensions of the fuchi are 1.8 x 3.4 x .8 cm tall. There is pleasing hammer work on the copper plate. Bugs and leaves are inlaid in gold, shakudo, & silver. This style of kashira, saddle shaped with the tsuka ito passing through, must have been time consuming to make. I like this set; you should also. Excellent condition. $195.
