Owari & Chrysanthemum Tsuba

A001

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
