    This is a lovely tsuba, the iron and surface finish are excellent. The shakudo insert is a nice touch - someone must have cherished this tsuba.


    I haven't seen a tsuba of such quality at such price for a long long time. Excellent offer, Manuel!

    I dare say that this is an opportunity. 

    Thank you for your kind words!

  5. i'm not an expert of mirrors, but sure they value more than some euro
    WIth a quick research i found this sold on catawiki that has exactly same design as yours https://www.catawiki.it/l/19624787-bronze-hand-mirror-signed-fujiwara-masashige-Japan-early-20th-century-meiji-period 

    the price looks quite cheap especially considered the lacquered box.
    Mirrors from that maker are also exhibited in museums https://www.britishmuseum.org/collection/object/A_1944-0401-2
