Sword Handle Cap Set (Fuchi-Gashira) of Birds
  • Sword Handle Cap Set (Fuchi-Gashira) of Birds

    SKU: NYE58

    This is a fine antique set of matching metal caps (fuchi-gashira) that are at either ends of the handle of the Japanese long sword (katana). The base metal of the set is the copper-gold alloy (shakudō) with an exceptionally fine texture surface (nanako-ji). The popular design of a flock of birds is very nicely inlayed in high relief of gold. This set would be great for collectors as a fine example late Edo Kinko style fuchi-gashria or to adore a fine set of matching fittings (koshirae) of a Japanese sword.
