Kinko Tsuba with Cockerel Family
An extremely fine kinko tsuba of oval form with cockerel family executed in gold on a shakudo nanako ground. The cockerel family is depicted in takazogan with a generous use of minutely detailed gold in high relief. The family rummages for food on one side and on reverse, two chicks appear to wander off tsuba's edge. This Ishiguro school tsuba is in excellent condition with no damage or restoration. 19th Century, Japan
