Hot Stamp Ogatana Tsuba

S0490

A massive iron tsuba for an ogatana, worn slung over the shoulder.  The sand iron plate is a rich brown black, with an appearance of moisture, and a plastic feeling, is decorated with various stamps of han, bats and the moon.  9.88 cm x 9.09 cm x 4.7 mm approximately.  My best guess is early - mid Edo Shoami.   This is a unique serious collector piece.  $1,200

Thanks to Barry Hennick for identifying the bats & moon theme.
