C260. Iron Tsuba with Brass Inlay Nautilus
C260. Iron tsuba with brass inlay. 7.3 x 7.5 x .35 cm on the plate. The nakago hitsu-ana is.8 x 2.4 cm. I don’t recall seeing nautilus as a design on tsuba before; wonder why. This is probably Heianjo Zogan or Yoshiro School. One line of brass on a shell and one rectangular dot of ten zogan are missing; otherwise condition is excellent. $225.
