Kaneshige Tsuba



A small sculpted tsuba by Kaneshige.  7.11 cm x 6.93 cm x 3.5 mm.  Haynes lists several smiths who signed this way, I'll let you be the judge of which attribution that you choose.  Hoan (late 17th - early 18th cent); Shoami (1775);  Nara (1700);  and a couple noted without location.  My preference would be Hoan from the quality of the plate, and the fact that the Shoami smith was from Aizu.
