Ko Kinko Sanmai Tsuba



An unusually large and well done ko kinko sanmai tsuba.  Momoyama period.  Very good condition.  Shakudo sheets with raised images and gold highlights over an iron core.  This was a functional tsuba, unlike so many of the sanmai tsuba that were decorative sheets over copper,  or the later export pieces.  8.27 cm x 7.62 cm x 3.8 mm.
