Details

Japanese Tsuba and Green Serpentine 18K gold Necklace. The stunning design of our Miniature Tsuba and Green Serpentine Necklace is based on a piece from the Museum's broad collection of magnificent tsuba in the Department of Arms and Armor. Tsuba was originally envisioned as a practical and protective instrument that would protect the hand from slipping down from the grip of a sword onto its blade. From the sixteenth century onward, however, the creation of tsuba evolved into an art form itself where more decorative pieces were being crafted. By the nineteenth century, there were many established schools and styles of tsuba making. Tsuba were interchangeable and were often made as part of a set of matching sword fittings, which could be mounted with blades of various types and dates. It is widely thought the arms and equipment the samurai used to rule Japan are exemplary masterpieces of steel, silk, and lacquer. The skills and daily life of the samurai are vividly evoked today through rare examples of their armor and swords, and also through paintings of battles, military sports, castles, stories and portraits of famous individual samurai warriors. The distinctive and sometimes unparalleled artistry of these works create a full picture of samurai culture, with its martially designed but uniquely refined aesthetic. * Serpentine * 18K gold overlay * Hook and eye clasp * Adjusts from 19''L to 21''L with extender * Matte finish * Satin cord
