T187. Kagamishi Tsuba
T187. Kagamishi tsuba. 7.7 x 7.7 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.7 cm. The Kagamishi were bronze mirror makers and since this style of carving is similar to that found on mirrors of the time, tsubas like this are given to Kagamishi. Well made and identical from one side to the other (expected for Kagamishi); the bronze fukurin is a nice touch.
Condition is excellent. $250.
