Yesterday found this tsuba, a little brass tsuba.
I would say its probably gendai or meiji period, doesn't seem very old.
Personally i would feel bad mounting it, kinnda like stabbing a baby turtle
I have never seen a tsuba shaped like a turtle in this way, remembers me to the mushroom heads tsubas,
What do you guys think about the age? Is this a common design? Comparing examples of turtles in Japanese tsubas
with this one,they appear to have a different aesthetic.
