Ko Kinko Sanmai Tsuba



An excellent, early kinko tsuba in very good condition.  Gilt flowers and shakudo vines and leaves on a good nanako ground, of vertical rows.  Gilt copper fukurin, and gilt sekigane.  Late Muromachi to early Edo.  Surprisingly, this is a sanmai tsuba, but of an age and quality not usually encountered.  In this case, the construction was to save the costly shakudo, and not to just have a pressed out plate mirroring front and back.  6.73 cm x6.28 cm x 3.7 mm.    $500.
