Original Militaria And Curios From All Periods
  • UNSIGNED EDO PERIOD IRON TSUBA IRIS & WATER

    $275.00
    This Edo period deep chocolate colored iron tsuba is well carved featuring the classic theme of Iris and water / Irises beside a flowing stream.The design is deeply incised and provides a nice tactile element to the otherwise smooth iron surface.The motif continues to the reverse as the water swirls along through the Irises on the opposite side. An unsigned example, this tsuba is a sturdy solid piece that would have been appealing to the more artistic side of a samurai.The size is 2 3/4" x 2 7/8" x 1/8" thick.The nakago-ana measures 1/4" x 1 1/16".
