Higo Tsuba

TS608

A strong Momoyama Higo tsuba, 8.05 cm x 8.05 cm x 5.3 mm.  Great color in hand, although the pictures do not show the true patina.  It will benefit from some brushing to bring up the surface.   There was a similar one at the San Francisco show was selling at as Owari, at $850.00.       New reference:  Yashima, Japan, latest sales sheet, lists what appears to be the same work, calls it Owari, dates it first part of Edo, and prices it at 380,000 yen.     That is within a stone's throw of $3,800.  My prices don't get raised after I post, so here is a chance to make a decent investment.                                                                            $650.
