M234. Namban Tsuba with Monkey
M234. Namban iron tsuba. 7.2 x 7.4 x .6 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .9 x 2.5 cm. I expect fragons on Namban tsuba but the dragons took the day off for this one; filling in we have a monkey. There are the usual criss-cross and undercut tendrils, floral bits, and what may be a war fan (gumbai). Condition is excellent. $495.
