Spending time wandering around the internet when my wife would have doing something productive (like bringing order to the chaos of my "study") I stumbled on this website:


I was actually looking for a specific habaki reference when I found it.  The website appears quite extensive if seemingly  trivial, however I saw a reference to the Wolverhampton Museum Collection of tsuba, so I googled wolverhampton tsuba and found lots of related hits.  A surprising hit told of a man, Ron Dutton, who was inspired by the tsuba collection to create medals:



I don't remember reading about the Wolverhampton tsuba collection on the Board...


Within the first link is a variety of interesting descriptions about Japanese metalwork, including a ternary plot of the colours of Au-Ag-Cu alloys that I hadn't seen before.


Anyway, FWIW.

Hi BaZZa

The Wolverhampton museum is onloy a few miles from the Birmingham museum

I know they have quite few tsuba

When I get chance I want to 'muscle' in on their collection for qa private view because of all the work I've done at the Birmingham museum

I wonder who has seem the F/K & menuki collection at the Birmingham museum as I heard they have some stunners
