Q159. Echizen Kinai Tsuba With Gold Inlay
Q159. Iron sukashi tsuba signed Echizen Ju Kinai Saku. 6.7 x 7 x .45 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .7 x 2.7 cm. Seems a bit atypical to find gold inlay on a Kinai tsuba; maybe this was the deluxe model. Condition is excellent and the shakudo pillow in the ryo-hitsu is a nice touch. $325.
