Shoami Matsudaira Mon Tsuba



An early Shoami moku tsuba with Matsudaira mon.  8.16 cm x 7.19 cm x 3.7 mm.  The actual thickness of the plate is less, as thee is a slight hammered rim.  A tsuba that is easily overlooked, until you note the profuse  tekotsu.  A rich black color with tsuchimei surface, and profuse tekotsu both in the face and the rim.  This one is for the serious collector who loves the iron.   


Large globular tekotsu on the face and the rim.
