T217. Large Ko Shoami Tsuba, Butterflies
T217. Early Edo period iron skashi tsuba. 8.4 x 8.4 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is.9 x 2.9 cm. The long time collector who owned this tsuba before me placed it in Ko-Shoami and I agree. Excellent plate with tekkotsu on the rim and in wonderful condition: this is nice. $350.
