Tsuba in the Fitzwilliam, Cambridge


Recommended Posts

This summer I was at a conference in London where Ian Bottomley spoke so eloquently. During one of the breaks I bumped into a good lady 'Objects Conservator' from the Fitzwilliam in Cambridge. During the course of our chat we touched on Tsuba and her eyes lit up. "Do you know anything about them?" she asked. "We have drawers full of them and no-one to advise us."


"Well, I have about 50..." I was saying when she broke in, "You sound like just the person to come and sort them out!"


"No", I protested, "Most are rubbish, and I know very little about them. You need someone like Ford Hallam to look at them." I suggested she Google him first to understnd the breadth and depth of his knowledge.


If she has contacted you, Ford, my apologies first and foremost, but I was hoping that you might be able to give them a pointer in the right direction.
