Ship Tsuba



A sukashi tsuba of a Japanese or Chinese ship, and, no, that is not a Christian cross.   It is the oriental counter part to a ships' wheel for steering.  Excellent condition.  7.05 cm x 6.94 cm x 3.9 mm.  The thickness of the plate and shape of the kozuka ana would place this as early Edo or Momoyama.
