Provenance: R. E. Haynes Serious Inquiries Only
"A masterpiece of Heianjo style tsuba. The lion and peonies are old-fashioned and interesting. The stubby face and shape of the seppa-dai also confirms the age dating ca.1400-1450. There is a border, so you can see that the two hitsu are naive. Seems to date to the end of the Muromachi period. There is no missing inlay. Attributed with Hakogaki by Dr. Sato Kanzan, dated mid-Summer 1972. Box lid states 'Heianjo Style'." (Haynes & Long)
