T366. Fine Tsuba with Paper to Jingo
T366. Iron tsuba by Higo Jingo. 6.9 x 7.35 x .3 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.7 cm. Flowers on a lattice on the plate and key fret inlay on the rim; the inlay is gold, I believe. On the back, where the key fret is discontinuous, that isn’t missing inlay; it was made this way. The tsuba comes with a Hozon paper from the NBTHK in Tokyo, dated 2015. No generation is specified.
When I first got this tsuba I liked it quite a bit; I now like it a lot more. Very fine work in excellent condition: 1st class. $1,100.
