Pair of Japanese stirrups, circa 1725-1750
This pair of iron abumi is inlaid with silver and gold cherry blossoms on their fronts and sides. Each is signed Kashu Ujinobu. The family name was Katsuki. There were two generations of Ujinobus active, according to Robert Haynes book on sword fitting makers, The Index of Japanese Sword Fittings and Associated Artists. See entry H11016.0. Red lacquer on the interiors appears to be original. Measurements are 23.7cm high X 38cm long each. There is light old rust overall on the iron and wear and cracking to the lacquer, which is 90+ percent intact.
