Saotome Tsuba


A large moku Momoyama or early Edo period armorer's tsuba, likely Saotome.  Very thin plate with a hammered mimi.  Amida yasuri design.  The metal is more grey than black.  9.11 cm x 8.45 cm x 5.5 at the mimi.  The plate is between 2 an 3 mm at the center and widens as it approached the edge, so that is some places the mimi only extends a bit over 1 mm.  Good condition, boxed.  $600
