Q567. Higo Tsuba, Little Guy, Big Hat, Rain
Q567. Iron tsuba with brass inlay. 6.7 x 7.2 x .4 cm at the slightly raised rim. The nakago hitsu-ana is .9 x 2.7 cm. This is a design popular with the smiths of Higo. Most likely a later work so it could go with any of the groups; Jingo might be a good fit. That is quite the hat! Condition is excellent. $395.
