Uzamaki-mon Kin-Urushi-nuri-zaya Tanto-Goshirae

 

A late Edo daimyo aikuchi koshirae with gold lacquer whirlpools covering the saya and a sandal wood tsuka with golden butterfly menuki. Fuchi, kashira, kurikata and the two saya kanagu are made of solid silver, and so is the kozuka. All kanagu have been made en suite - this is a custom ordered item.

 

The dimensions are:

total length: 39.5 cm

tsuka length: 9.8 cm

saya length; 29.7 cm

 

This koshirae has been published twice: in the Kokusai Tosogu Kai (KTK) 2007 catalogue and in the NTHK magazine Token To Rekishi (#683, July 2008). It comes from the collections of Nick Nakamura (chairman of the KTK) and Henry Wilson (a fellow NMB member)

 

I think I will let the photographs speak for this excellent koshirae. You will usually see items of this quality in museums and only the best collections. 

 

$2,575 including worldwide shipping, PayPal extra, please
