Hirata Hikozo Tsuba
Well, always its something. The Lexus requires $3,650 worth of work, so it is time to make some deep cuts and get things out the door. So I am reducing the price of this to help pad the hurt of the auto repairs. So I am putting a price on this.
A rare lacquered iron tsuba with hakogaki to first generation Hirata Hikozo. 7.16 cm x 6.9 cm x 3.7 mm. The plate tapers to a hexagonal groove; the hitsuana are large Matsudaira mon. A very rich deep black, well worked iron, that is very reflective. Robert Haynes said that it is very rare to find works in iron. There is a illegible remnant of a collector's attribution in red lacquer. Not for sale at this time.
