T216. Iron Sukashi Tsuba. Bird & Cherry
T216. Iron sukashi tsuba. 7.2 x 7.3 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is.7 x 2.45 cm. Classic design of a bird on a plum tree (unless it’s a cherry tree). This tsuba is unusual in that the nakago hitsu-ana has been lined with copper to reduce its size. The work shows a naivety that I find pleasing. Excellent condition. $190.
