Collection Piece - Please Inquire
A Kagami-shi tsuba dating about ca. 1400. The motif is very interesting comprising of various flora (aoi, omodaka, sakura), sake container, inro, and kettle being far from typical. This representational design of landscape with flowers and objects has a classical presence that is both naive and noble in concept. The ryohitsu shitate (hitsu ana) are of early design and original to the casting.
