C276. Iron Tsuba with Fine Dragon
C276. Iron tsuba with dragon. 8.1 x 8.8 x .5 cm on the raised rim. The nakago hitsu-ana is .75 x 2.6 cm. The consignor of this tsuba thinks Mito is a possible origin. Kawari gata (odd shape) and a beautifully raised rim; the dragon passing in and out of the plate is nice also. Subtle tekkotsu on the rim; excellent condition. $325.
