Owari & Chrysanthemum Tsuba
The first has nicely sculpted elements, and good tekotsu in the rim. With some cleaning, this could be a decent collectable. 7.16 cm x 6.88 cm x 4.3 mm. Likely middle Edo.
The chrysanthemum is Saotome work, being two pieces fitted together. The rim and the spokes are fitted to the seppadai, which is a separate piece of iron. Early Edo. 6.92 cm x 6.85 cm. x 4.4 mm. Needs cleaning. Both pieces are collectable, but require some work to clean off the rust. $400
