Return to TSUBA
Provenance:   Robert Haynes $2000.00

"Presented here is a round iron Akasaka tsuba of a Mantis and Wheel. This is a representation of the mantis that confronts a wheel in a reckless and innocent manner. In the Samurai world it is praised. The condition is relatively good though it displays a sword wound.

On page 205 of SUKASHI TSUBA, the work of Akasaka Masatora is listed. The design is almost exactly the same down to the smallest details. It matches wonderfully." (Haynes & Long)

8.10cm x 8.03cm x 0.60cm
