NambanTsuba

TS0446

A classic Canton Namban tsuba of dragons and tama.  Carved and pierced.  Silver and gold nunome highlights.  Surprisingly, there are abundant globular tekotsu in the rim, not something I would expect to see in Namban guards.  6.9 cm x 6.54 cm x 4.7 mm.  A very good representative piece, and of greater interest than it appears at first glance.        $225.
