Q812. Yamakichibei Tsuba, Dragonflies


Q812. Iron sukashi tsuba. 8 x 8.5 x .5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.7 cm. This is signed Yamakichibei and, typical of these tsuba, we have subtle tekkotsu on the rim and a deep, soft, yakite (partially melted) surface. dragonflies for the sukashi; condition is excellent. $350.
