Hi Tosogu experts,
I purchased a Tsuba today without knowing nothing....
Metal : iron with a copper insert at one hitsu ana level.
Size: 82 mm X 80 mm
What is the design of the two large hitsu ana (Baskets?)
It looks quite old but is to really beginning of Edo ?
What is the reason for the copper insert ? Is it part of the design?
All views on this Tsuba are warmly welcome.
