T302. Rain Dragon Tsuba in Brass signed Toshimasa
T302. Sukashi tsuba in brass, signed Kofu Ju Toshimasa. 6.3 x 7.1 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.7 cm. A rain dragon is the subject. Bob Haynes has a smith signing Kofu Ju Toshimasa working in the 17th century; this may be him? This design worked in brass is often seen but I think this piece is a step above most. The brass is lustrous and condition is excellent. $225.
