C292. Iron Tsuba of a Skull

$275 + Shipping & Insurance

C292.  Iron tsuba. 7 x 7.1 x .25 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is 1 x 2.9 cm. Funny how the Samurai kept reminding themselves what their business was about. This is a most unusual treatment of the skull or bones motif on kodogu; don't think I've ever seen the like. Serious evidence of layering at the top of the plate. Robert Haynes has seen this one; he gives it to katchushi and thinks it may have been mounted to a naginata.  $275.
