A116. Iron Tsuba with Brass Highlight. Gourds & Bird
A116. Iron sukashi of gourds and a bird in flight. 6.8 x 7 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .9 x 2.6 cm. The edges of the gourds, at the sukashi and along the rim, have been filed and filled with brass, a process that has created greater depth to the design. I can’t recall having seen this technique used before. Condition is excellent. $175.
