T372. Iron Tsuba, Rabbits on Waves
T372. Iron tsuba with brass inlay: rabbits on waves. 7.9 x 8 x .4 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.8 cm. The brass inlay leads to an attribution to Heianjo Zogan but this could be something else. Some of the brass on the back is missing but condition otherwise is fine. I very much like the naivety in the carving of the bunnies: quaint and comfortable. And I can almost see faces in the storm clouds above. $195.
