J140. Iron Tsuba, Nagasaki or Jakushi

$425 + Shipping & Insurance

J140.  This tsuba was shown to Robert Haynes who gave it to either Nagasaki or Jakushi.  7.3 x 7.6 x .3 cm.  The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.8 cm.  To me this looks like one of the Jakushi went to work for the Nara School (not likely).  The iron has a wonderful, soft patina and the gold work differs quite a bit from normal Jakushi technique (less like nunome, more like a true inlay).  I see silver and copper inlay also and even a few subtle tekkotsu on the rim.  At 1st glance it is easy to pass up this tsuba but it deserves a closer look; I think it is quite fine.  $425.
