Q707. Interesting Namban Tsuba with Zodiac
Q707. I think this tsuba is unusual for Namban: the central area is exactly as expected but the outer ring with the Chinese zodiac, animals on one side and characters for the animals on the other, could have been taken from a pure Japanese tsuba. 6.9 x 7.1 x .45 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.3 cm. Condition is excellent and the shakudo pillows in the ryo hitsu are a nice touch. $695.
