T201. Iron & Gold Tsuba signed Jakushi
T201. Iron tsuba signed Jaushi. 7 x 7.3 x .4 cm. As expected for Jakushi work a fierce dragon cavorts on the front and hangs a leg over to the back. Gold (nunome or uttori?) highlights. Interesting treatment of the rim: I’ve seen the fold lines before but not the intermittent closings found on this piece. There are remnants of gold on the rim also. Both hitsu-ana have been plugged with shakudo and one side of one plug is missing. $325.
