Item #: BQ1529 -- Iron Sukashi Tsuba, Signed Akao Yoshimasa, Edo-period ca. 1750 -- $625.00

Excellent bold work in fine thick tempered steel. The subject of the sukashi is cryptic and we are uncertain of its meaning; it may be Christian, as it bears a strong cruciform association. 7.5 cm. tall x 7.3 cm. wide x .55 cm. thick.
