Gingko and Window Ko Shoami Sukashi Tsuba

TS0443

A substantial iron tsuba with the most abundant tekotsu I have ever seen.  While the picture looks rust pitted, it isn't.  This is all tekotsu.  The plate is like new condition. A warm chocolate brown patina with so many tekotsu that it flashes silver in the sunlight.  7.65 cm x 7.02 cm x 6.7 mm.  This Ko Shoami tsuba dates from early Edo, or perhaps before, as per Robert Haynes.   $1,200
