Tosho Tsuba



An early Muromachi tosho tsuba, made from meteor iron.  Almost the entire plate is Martinsite.   Interestingly, Robert. Haynes, 'I have never seen this design before'. 8.44 cm x  8.51 cm x 2.7 mm    I was reluctant to post the papers, because their dating is so obviously wrong, calling it beginning of Edo period.  Haynes' comment was laughter, and a correction to early Muromachi.   So in any case here are the papers, the buyer can do with them what they wish.                                       

Concentrated Martinsite
