YOSHIOKA SCHOOL KOZUKA 020122
2.28.22 admin@nihonto

This is a beautifully executed kozuka made in the Edo period by an artist of  the Yoshioka school.  It measures 9.65 cm or slightly more than 3 ¾ inches by 0.42 cm or about 9/16 inches.  The front of the plate is shakudo nanako with the nanako being extremely fine and well done.  A shakudo axe is rendered very realistically on the obverse together with a golden coin which is done equally well.  The reverse is a combination of a smooth shakudo plate joined by a gold plate on a diagonal plane.  The whole piece has a feeling of grace and elegance and is in superb condition.

This kozuka comes with NBTHK Tokubetsu kodogu papers attributing this kozuka to the Yoshioka school and it is contained in a custom made fitted wooden box.
