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.
