'Sanada Tembo'

Return to Tsuba Collective
Provenance: Elliott Long $1000.00
"Scattered tsuba with iron mallet joint round inlay, unsigned, one hitsu filled. It is a blunt and artistic fukiyose brass inlaid tsuba. I think it's Sanada Tembo because it's made in a different place and has letters stamped on it. There is an explanation on page 15 of "The Beauty of Japanese Tsuba" by Arthur H. Church. Although there are stains, and rust over time, it is a gem with an old-fashioned taste." (Haynes & Long)

8.39cm x 8.24cm x 0.45cm
