• Shishi Koshirae
  • Shishi Koshirae

Period: Late Edo

Description:
Original koshirae with a shishi theme on all fittings. It is very interesting to see that the tsuka, saya and even the tsunagi are fitted for the bohi of the sword that was previously in these mountings. A very nice touch and care for detail. The original sword appears to have been a koto katana of 67cm. Everything including the nuri is in wonderful condition.
