    Another Shoami

    Thanks Marius. Both sides also have traces of gold lines, but the design is long gone. I wondered f the cloud designs were a later addition to an older tsuba. will post a PIC of the paper.

    Another Shoami

    Ive had a bit of spare time so looking at some pieces i purchased few years ago. This one i find really interesting. Cloud formations inlayed in gold, silver and shakudo. Hozon to Shoami. Its textured on the front, however smooth and undecorated on the rear, perhaps to save on cost?. Im guessing mid edo with later additions of the clouds? Rob M
