OWARI
 
75mm x 74mm x 6mm at the rim      4.5mm at the seppadai
 
This is a very good TOKEI style tsuba by OWARI school. This tokei design is unique with the sword at the centre of the gear wheel. And the handle of the sword has fine engraving.

 
The surface is not flat, it becomes thinner toward the centre. And powerful tekkotsu appears on the rim. These are typical character of the old OWARI school, before 17th century.

The tekkotsu on the rim
 
 
The rust condition is very good on the surface, but a little thinner on the rim.
