J115. Signed Jakushi Tsuba. Quite nice.
J115. Signed Jakushi tsuba: iron with gold nunome. 7.2 x 7.4 x .45 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.5 cm. The collector who has consigned this tsuba to my site tells me he thinks this is an earlier style of Jakushi signature. I find it interesting that the raised design on the front creates a recessed seppa-dai.The hitsu have been plugged with shakudo. Some of the gold nunome is missing; otherwise condition is excellent. Nice piece. $315.
