Q134. Iron Sukashi Tsuba Signed & with Gold Inlay
Q134. Sukashi tsuba in iron with gold nunome. 6.6 x 7.1 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.6 cm. This is signed, Kofu no Ju Tatsunao. The tsuba comes in a box that has a picture of a very similar tsuba by the same smith, along with a lengthy description (which I haven’t had translated) taped inside the lid. There are numerous tekkotsu on the rim. Condition is great. $245.
