Dear fellow board members,

 

for sale is a very rare and very old Yoshiro tsuba. The quality of the iron plate is absolutely stunning. The shinchu (brass) inlays are done in hira-zogan showing archaic geometric forms. I believe that this piece dates from the late Muromachi or early Momoyama period.

 

Size: 7.6 cm x 7.6 cm x 0.3 cm

 

Asking price is USD 890.00/ EUR 825.00 (including PayPal and a 10%-donation to the NMB) plus shipping.

 

Best,

 

Chris

That's in incredible shape for a Yoshiro! And Heianjo & Yoshiro ARE what I collect, too! Have to figure out what I can sell quickly.
