Large, Tembo tsuba

Recommended Posts

Offered for sale is this large, Tembo school tsuba in iron.

Hot stamped with a dragonfly design and a sukashi of what I believe to be Geta, which are a form of traditional wooden sandal.

Size is 94mm tall by 86mm wide with a nakago ana of 33m(large size because of the notches for the sekigane).

Slightly raised mimi, which measures 5mm thick.


Probably mid to late Edo.

Patina is a little thin in places but otherwise solid.


Price is US$150, plus payment fees and shipping.
