Q108. Spectacular Tsuba, Owari Kinko
Q108. Kinko tsuba: shakudo nanako with a gold dragon wrapped around the rim (so cool!). 6.5 x 7.2 x .5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.5 cm. The shakudo is jet black, the nanako are tiny fine except for around the seppa dai and ryo hitsu where they are larger in contrast, and the dragon is great. There are kiri mon at top and bottom, and did I mention that dragon?
Perfect condition. This comes in a high class, fitted box with a pillow and with a Hozon paper from the NBTHK in Tokyo, dated 2014 and giving the tsuba to Owari Kinko. $895
