Large And Valuable Early Kyo Shoami

Dear fellow NMB members,

 

I would like to pass one of my best tsuba – a beautiful Kyo Shoami sukashi tsuba dating back to the Momoyama/early Edo period. This tsuba is large and thick and is a very collectible piece by itself but would look great mounted e.g. on a Tensho koshirae, too. The design is five bundles each consisting of five pieces (this numerical game is rather typical for early Shoami pieces). The design may represent noshi which symbolize wishes for a long life. The tsuba is protected by a golden fukurin.

 

Dimensions: 8.2 cm x 8.2 cm x 0.6 cm

 

Asking price: a VERY modest SOLD

 

Best,

 

Chris
