Iron Mon Sukashi Tsuba

TS0484

A very fine mon sukashi tsuba from Momoyama or early Edo with seven mon.  Excellent sand iron with good color, with very good tekotsu, both granular and globular.  7.83 cm x 7.3 cm. x 3.8 mm at the mimi.   The two dimples on the side of the center opening are from some decorator genius attaching this to a lamp.  There appear much  worse in the picture than in hand.  This was one of those difficult to photograph pieces.               $750
