C269. Heianjo Zogan Tsuba with Amida yasuri
C269. Heianjo Zogan tsuba. 7 x 7 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.8 cm. For what I know, amida yasuri are uncommon on Heianjo Zogan work; this one has it. Grape vines and a fence in inlaid brass and there is quite a bit of old lacquer covering the plate. Very little of the brass is missing; there are subtle tekkotsu on the rim. $150.
