C268. Etched Iron Tsuba


C268.  Iron tsuba with etched design of reeds and geese.  5.9 x 6.6 x .35 cm.  The nakago hitsu-ana is 1 x 2.5 cm.  There are many tekkotsu on the rim.  It appears that this was at one time mounted to a yoroi doshi (armor piercing) tanto, given the wide nakago hitsu-ana.  Fine condition.  Was $115, now $75.
