T111. Higo Tsuba

$550 + Shipping & Insurance

Iron tsuba with soft metal (brass?, gold?) inlaid dots.  7.5 x 8.3 cm in excellent condition.  One nice touch that I can't remember seeing on a tsuba before: the carved line just inside the inside edge of both the kotsuka and kogai hitsu-ana.  Very fine tekkotsu on the rim, and a sparkly surface leads me to believe this tsuba was made with sa-tetsu (sand iron).  There is a catalog # painted on either side of the nakago hitsu-ana; maybe this tsuba was once in a museum or large collection.  $550.
