C277. Wonderful Old Heianjo Zogan Tsuba

$350 + Shipping & Insurance

C277.  Heianjo zogan tsuba.  7.95 x 7.95 x .3 cm.  The nakago hitsu-ana is .9 x 2.8 cm.  Another tsuba consigned to my site; this one the owner thinks dates to about 1450.  Iron with brass inlay: Kanji on either side of the nakago ana and arabesque & vines elsewhere.  Much of the fine arabesque brass is missing and one section has been replaced with a simpler inlay (at least I think this is a replacement and not original); the brass in the Kanji is intact.  Subtle tekkotsu on the rim and a great feeling of advanced age: quite nice.  $350.
