Iron Sukashi Tsuba

Return to Tsuba Collective
An excellent study piece of a iron sukashi design. There are obvious traits of various schools: Akasaka, Owari, Shoami, and others. We may never know who actually made this highly refined and simple piece.

The design is of drawer handles symmetrically placed beside the seppa-dai which symbolize opening the chest of good fortune.
6.98cm x 6.52cm x 0.473cm
