A large and exceptionally fine Nagasaki tsuba of sakura, ume, and matsuba in iron zogan, dating from 1750 - 1800. 8.3 cm x 8.02 cm x 5.5 mm, descending to a 2.5 mm mimi. An extremely dense, sculpted iron tsuba, with prominent granular tekotsu on the face and obverse. The tsuba is thin in the center, and gradually widens toward the mimi, where it suddenly rolls down to a very narrow carved mimi. Excellent color and condition.
