Indian Namban Tsuba



A large Namban tsuba that is obviously an import to Japan, its origins would likely be either India or Indo-China.  The obvious tell is the dagger on the left hand side, which is clearly from the aforementioned areas and not at all Japanese.  The silver nunome is intact.  This is a Namban that, if not unique, is certainly few in numbers.  I have never seen similar in fifty-odd years.   8.45 cm x 8.06 x 4.4 mm.   $550
