Dear NMB Members:

 

I recently acquired this nice iron Bushu ju Masafusa tsuba with some other pieces from a collector who purchased this piece in the very early 1980's. It comes with a custom fitted box. I am going to offer it to the NMB members first for a couple of days, then likely upload it to Ebay. There are no papers with it. The piece measures approximately 2-7/8ths inches high by 2-3/4 inches wide. 

 

The price is $800. Buyer pays all shipping and insurance costs. Payment by Paypal ("Friends and Family). PM me with any questions. Thanks for looking.

 

Sorry for the sideways images. I saved them in the right configuration, but when I upload them to the NMB, they are uploading sideways. I took the photos with my cellphone.  

 

Regards,

Bill E. Sheehan (Yoshimichi)

Edit and save them on your phone. Then the phone will save the correct orientation. It is a cellphone thing.

Wish all tsuba came with that level of explanation!

Very nice tsuba!

There are two tsuba by Masafusa with the same design on page 46 in Tanko: Bushu Ito Ha (Tsuba Craftsmen of the Bbushu-Ito School) by Akimoto, Arai and Kasahara. 1999.

Jon, rather pm your tel number to Bill, or Bill...send him one.
Not a good idea to post your number in public.
