PROVENANCE:    Mariusz Kolecki $8500.00
Bold and powerful, excellent iron plate and finish with a classic motif rendered with more life and energy than we see in any other masterworks. The negative openwork is of a wild goose and kama (sickle). Some might see this piece as the epitome of aesthetic sensibilities as expressed in a tsuba.

7.70cm x 8.35cm x 0.25cm (seppa), 0.40cm (edge)
Signature: 'YAMAKICHIBEI'. This was made by the Yondai Yamakichibei master, not a daisaku or daimei. A Momoyama period masterwork.
