Tsuba with leaves and cherry blossoms


  • Catalogue text

    In flat sunk relief three large cherry-blossoms (two on the back) accompanied by fern-like leafy sprays in katakiri engraving, two of the stems being rendered by fine curved sawcuts (ito-sukashi); traces of gold nunome on some of the petals and also elsewhere to represent certain branches of the foliage; narrow border marked by an engraved line.

    "Autolycus" (compare No.202 [EAX.10202]) has again been at the gold.
