C143. Echizen Kinai Sukashi Tsuba
C143. Iron sukashi tsuba signed, "Echizen no Ju Kinai Saku." 7.8 x 7.9 x .5 cm. This is as nice an Echizen Kinai tsuba as I've ever seen; much better thn the everyday dragon. A butterfly or, I think, a hawk moth with leaves and gourds. The wings of the moth are worked in gold nunome and spots on leaves are gold foiled. There is a shakudo pillow at the kotsuka hitsu ana (nice touch). The tsuba comes with an unusual but perfectly useable box.
There is one spot on a wing where the tsuba has been lightly scuffed; otherwise condition is excellent. $650.
