追加情報                                              Additional Information

 

This plate is very thick, more than usual just by this school. This example would seem to be the work of the Edo period Myochin school.

This example was probably made by a later master of that school. The plate has a very fine patina. It would seem that this tsuba was made to emulate the original Horai examples, of the Momoyama period, some of these Tsuba’s are signed.

This Tsuba is suitable for a Wakizashi or small Katana.
