Iron Sukashi Owari School Tsuba with NBTHK Hozon Tosogu
Iron sukashi tsuba by Owari School. With NBTHK Hozon Tosogu. Decorated with apricot leafs and wild geese. Please take a look at how those two are connected, there is a distinctive cut where wings end and leafs begin. Thanks to that we see that those motives do not touch each other. Geese are flying away from the center. These makes tsuba feel lighter and gives me an impression of freedom.
This tsuba is in good condition. However there are some places on the front where patina is thin. Please see the pictures.
