Wakizashi koshirae with matching kashira, fuchi, kurikata and kojiri. Tsuba and uragawara are not from the original set.
Soft metal fuchikashira, kurikata and kojiri. Made of a soft metal and partially gilded. Decorated with dragon among clouds.
Menuki made of shakudo with silver inlay and gilded elements. They are mostly cover under ito so It is difficult to say what they depict.
Good quality tsuka maki. Kashira is a bit loose.
Yamagane tsuba that clearly is a replacement. In my opinion this koshirae would benefit if tsuba was changed. Right now I do not have a good replacement though.
Saya decorated with crushed shell. Uragawara made of shakudo and decorated with see motives. It is actually high end piece, with inlaid gold. It is also a nice match with crushed shell on saya.
Saya was damaged and unprofessionally repaired around uragawara. There are also some signs of repairs on mune near koiguchi.
Madei in 19th century.
