Japanese antique Tsuba iron kiku-sukashi katana Edo. SIZE(about)? 71.4×68.0×5.7? (2.81×2.67×0.22in)?? 111.9g(3.95oz). Watermark work of a good-looking flower figure was given. Widely used for viewing and crafting Masanori Choshuzumi This is an excellent Choshu tsuba with the inscription. Choshu-Hagi prospered as a castle town of 369,000 koku for the Mori clan, and the Choshu domain actively encouraged the production of tsuba in order to increase its financial resources by exporting it to other domains. For this reason, the number of tsuba craftsmen and their works is so large that it is called Choshu in the west, as opposed to Aizu in the east. In contrast to Aizu, which tended to be over-manufactured. Choshu Tsuba consistently maintains its quality. Rather, there was even a tendency for iron quality to improve as time went on. This work boldly cuts through the chrysanthemum leaves with meat carving and expresses the leaf veins with hair carving. I put a small watermark on the return of the leaf. Masanori is the second generation of the Nomura family, and the first generation is Masatoki. It is thought to be around the middle of the Edo period. There are no noticeable scratches.
