T149. Sukashi tsuba of a net
T149. Iron sukashi tsuba of a net. 6.7 x 7 x .4 cm. This tsuba comes with a box (possibly lacquered but I suspect it is plastic) and an evaluation sheet from Aoi Art in Japan (a former owner bought this from that shop). The sheet doesn’t have much to tell us other than unsigned and Edo Period. In any case, this is a nice tsuba: ample tekkotsu on the rim and condition of the fine sukashi, considering the age, is quite remarkable. $225.
