Chidori Bird Tsuba

Recommended Posts

Hi chaps, this is an unusual one of chidori birds that i picked up from a fellow board member a few years ago. Has anyone got an idea on school? I cant really place it. Unusually despite the design covering the seppa dai it does appear to be mounted at one time.

 

May thanks

 

Rob

Hi Rob,

 

Now that is a nice tsuba, good carving especially for iron. The carving over the seppa dai area is also interesting. Reminds me a little of some Hizen school work but its outside of my limited knowledge base.

 

It will help to have some measurements to help promote other comments on a possible maker - height, width and thickness at the centre and edge if your able too.

 

I have a nishigaki kanshiro soft metal example of the same design on the for sale section of the board but have seen others from nearly every school.

 

Kindest regards

Michael
