Namban Dragons Tsuba
A classic Namban tsuba from Edo. 78.13 cm x 6.69 cm x 4.8 mm. Excellent color and condition. Gold pupils in the eyes, one missing. I find the unusual shape of the seppa dai interesting, and may argue that this an item imported into Japan. Some wear to some of the nunome, and rust in the web verify that this is an older piece that had been worn.
