T206. Signed Jakushi Tsuba
T206. Iron tsuba signed Jakushi. 6.7 x 7.1 x .5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.3 cm. A fearsome dragon, picked out in nunome zogan in gold, is carved from the plate. Interesting treatment of the rim, done in 2 layers with interconnecting rungs (imagine wrapping a ladder around a barrel). My best guess is that this is later, school work, but what do I know. Condition is excellent. $175.
