Q694. Heianjo zogan tsuba. 7.5 x 7.5 x .3 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.9 cm. Heianjo zogan are brass inlay into iron but this one looks like copper inlay for the larger elements. They may be copper but a different explanation is that the larger elements have been lacquered with a copper color. Hints of brass color appear at the edges of the inlays so maybe lacquer is the answer.

Whatever the case, this tsuba is quite pleasant. It shows signs of age and use but loss of inlay is minimal. It comes in a fitted box and with a Tokubetsu Kicho paper from the NBTHK dated 1973, giving the work to Heianjo. $595.
