Fine Open Work Sukashi Katana Tsuba -Japanese Tea House
On Hold - RO

Very attractive sukashi openwork tsuba. At almost exactly 8cm in diamter it is a nice large katana sized piece. Motif features a small tea house subtly located in the bottom corner and generously surrounded by paulownia branches towards the bottom and maple branches towards the top. The design effectively presents the traditional idea that the tea house should be subordinated to nature, fitting in with natural surroundings instead of dominating its environment. Lovely tsuba with some gold highlights remaining. Would fit in nicely with most collections and especially with a collector with a special interest in the traditional Tea Ceremony.
