Q261. Nicely Made Iron Tsuba with Gold Inlay
Q261. Iron tsuba with gold, silver, & shakudo inlay. 7 x 7.6 x .42 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .9 x 2.9 cm. Very nice hammer work here which, combined with the chisel, suggests a lot of landscape with a few simple strokes (check the area below and to the left of the seppa dai on the front, for example). The raised rim is quite nicely done also. Great condition. $250.
