M151. Iron and brass tsuba
M151. Iron and brass tsuba. 7.9 x 8.2 x .35 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana measures .75 x 2.6 cm. Unusual: heavy hammer work and stamping as would be expected on a Tempo tsuba, interspersed with brass zogan concentric circles and also lining the seppa dai. Great soft patina on the plate and the brass is nearly 100% intact. Wonderful condition; comes with a box. $210.
