Higo Yatsuhachi Tsuba



A large Higo Yatsuhachi (eight plank bridge) sukashi tsuba.  7.89 cm x 7.7 cm x 4.3 mm.  Covered in fine granular tekotsu, which gives the pictures a slightly rough appearance.  Excellent color and condition.  This is a classic theme used by the Higo Kamiyoshi artists.  According to Haynes, not Fukunobu, but a contemporary of his, circa 1800 to 1850.  So, I am reducing the price to: $1,400  down from $1,750.
