T358. Signed Kaneiye Iron Tsuba
T358. Iron tsuba signed Yamashiro no Kuni Fushimi Kaneiye. 8.1 x 8.3 x 3.5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .9 x 2.7 cm. Finely carved plants with gold and silver inlay accents and nicely worked tsuchime surface. This signature is very close to that of my Holbrook tsuba H188, which Skip gave to the 3rd generation.
Condition, except for a small scuff on the shakudo hitsu-ana plug, is excellent. $350.
