T453. Kinko Sukashi Tsuba
T453. Kinko tsuba. 7.9 x 8 x .5 cm. The nakago hitsu-ana is .9 x 2.8 cm. Kiku and pine bark are the motif. The material may be yamagane (native copper) but it may also be an alloy of copper. I’m unsure of the age: for all I know it could be older but Kinko is a safe call. $150.
