Q228. Iron Tsuba with Elaborate Inlay
Q228. Iron tsuba: a person sits besides a small waterfall. 6.9 x 7.2 x .3 cm at the rim (thicker at the seppa dai). The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.8 cm. The waterfall pours from the ryo-hitsu: clever use of something that is otherwise utilitarian. Excellent condition. $175.
