C329. Heianjo or Yoshiro Zogan Iron Tsuba


C329. Iron tsuba with extensive brass inlay. 8.1 x 8.2 x .45 cm on the raised rim (.3 cm on the plate). The nakago hitsu-ana is .8 x 2.8 cm. Duck weed/water grass is  the theme, both on the plate and on the raised rim. Amazingly, almost none of the brass is missing. There are remnants of old lacquer in places. Was $350, now $275.
