Tokubetsu Hozon Kanshiro tsuba

Recommended Posts

Dear Members,

 

Please see attached Ebay link to my latest sale item.

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254192803857

 

This is a truly superb example of the classic wave design in a very attractive flat round shape with dote mimi - what makes this example particularly desirable its its original unrestored colour and condition for which it has Tokubetsu Hozon papers and comes complete with a luxury custom fitted box.

 

I am open to sensible offers or can sell direct to those who know me.

 

Kindest regards

 

Michael

Whoa- ^_^ :beer: 

 

I am fairly sure I held this one in Japan a long time ago and it had nice weight and patina.

I didn't know you owned it.

 

Hospital hit me a doozy of a bill yesterday, but I will PM you about this later.

--- I'm half hoping someone gets to it first. I haven't seen any like this on the Japan market for quite a while.

Thanks guys - yes this one has been a difficult decision to part with as it has everything going for it.

 

There are few soft metal wave tsuba around but ones like this that have never been restored are exceptionally rarely seen. The carving still contains quite a lot of age related grime but the risk to the patina is too great to clean and actually adds to its charm.

 

See link in first post to ebay listing.

 

Kindest regards

 

Michael
