Tsuba in the form of a citron with leaves and stem


  • Catalogue text

    Modelled in openwork as a citron with stem and leaves.

    Hara gives "Tanzendō Tessai of Kishū, perhaps identical with the Tanzendō Yoshikatsu [Japanese text] who signs a guard in the Berlin Kunstgewerbe Museum with date 1813 and another in the Hamburg Museum with date 1817. Wada (p.121) quotes the signature Kōto (i.e. of Kiōto) Tanzendō Tessai as appearing on circular guards of iron in openwork with "square" edges. Neither authority gives the surname Kinoshita, which is found on two guards in the V. and A. M., one dated 1816.
