T219. Iron Tsuba with 2 Boats
T219. Iron tsuba. 7.3 x 7.9 x .5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .75 x 2.6 cm. I believe this to be late Edo period. I know it is an incredible example of the carver’s skill. 2 large boats side by side with a smaller boat behind, rollicking waves and amazing detail. And on the reverse, 2 stylized chidori fly over the water. Condition is perfect. $300.
