Dragon Tanto Tsuba



A tsuba for a tanto or small wakizashi.  6.73 cm x 5.74 cm x 4 mm.  Intact gold and silver on copper wire base of dragon, clouds, and water.  Shakudo sekigane.  Could use a little TLC to clean up the surface.  As per Robert Haynes, from a picture, either Sendai or Hizen.  Because the gold is so thick, actually high enough to make oshigata, I favor Sendai, since Hizen work tends to be surface nunome.
