T418. Iron Sukashi Tsuba with Extensive Brass Inlay
T418. Iron sukashi tsuba. 8 x 8.2 x .5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .7 x 2.7 cm. This is quite distinctive work, with ample brass and one instance of copper inlay on each side. I’m sure this could be tied to a school of tsuba making; I have no idea which school though. Condition is excellent. I can find only one tiny piece of brass missing from one of the flowers; all else is still here. $300.
