I recently inherited a tsuba from my grandmother. We think she bought it in Japan in the 60's as she traveled there then. She was an artist and this was one of many things she brought home from her travels around the world (we also inhereited two ukiyo-e).
We are very curious about the tsuba, is it genuine? From what time period, what maker etc? We know nothing about it, only that our grandmother wasn't one for tourist shops or souvenirs so were hoping its the real deal...
We would also love to display it in some way. Does anyone here have any advice on how to do that in the best way?
Sorry for my bad english, I'm from Sweden.
