Q114. Unusual Iron Tsuba
Q114. Thick iron tsuba with large, plugged ryo hitsu. 6.4 x 7.4 x .6 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.9 cm. Not sure I’ve seen another like this. The large ryo hitsu put me in mind of Higo but it could be something else for all I know. The plugs appear to be brass with remnants of lacquer but I’m not sure of that either. Don’t know much, do I? This tsuba comes with a fitted box. $295.
