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.
