A Soten school iron and gilt daisho tsuba set, each tsuba of oval form and executed in sukashi technique. The two tsuba portray the legendary Chinese legend of the wise sages in a bamboo grove. The elders are engaged in various pursuits: playing the flute, reading scrolls, conversing and drinking. The figures are chiseled in relief with gilt nunome-zogan details, copper and silver inlays for the faces and hands. The two tsuba are well housed in a wooden display box lined with purple silk and pillow. Overall, this superb daisho set is in very good condition with minimal wear to the iron and gilt, commensurate with age and use. Nakago-ana: 2.5cm Edo Period, Japan
