Satsuma Chrysanthemum Cup Tsuba
A small chrysanthemum cupped tsuba. 6.64 cm x 6.28 cm x 4.3 mm the profile is 6.3 mm. Very dense metal with good tekotsu. There is a remnant of silver nunome on the cupped side. The Satsuma tended to use small tsuba on their katana, the center opening would accommodate a katana. They were also very loyal to the emperor, so the chrysanthemum is a natural design for them. $275.
