Akasaka Tsuba



A fine Akasaka tsuba of arrow heads with boar's eye sukashi, 7.47 cm x 7.46 cm x 5.9 mm.  Very good color and condition.  strong surface tekotsu.  In a custom fitted box, and with NBTHK Hozon kanteisho. 

The return of the prodigal.  This tsuba came out of Japan some four years ago, at 150,000 yen (about $1,850 at today's exchange rate, though about $1,347 at that time).  Having changed hands several times, it has now come back to me, and, thus it is being offered to the next transient owner.
