J121. Namban Tsuba, Qing Import Kanton
J121. Namban tsuba. 6.9 x 7.3 x .5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is.8 x 2.5 cm. The tsuba’s owner calls this Qing import, Kanton (Sino-Tibetan). He knows more thn I do so I won’t argue. Water dragons in karakusa that is under cut and crosses over other tendrils. The gilt double rim is a very nice touch. $350.
