Dragon Tsuba - Edo or modern reproduction?

That's alright, it was selling pretty cheap so I was thinking why not. To be honest, the average person would find a fanciful design like this more interesting than say a plainly designed but well forged Myochin piece (for example).

 

I don't understand how this could have been made in the Edo period. It seems like too much work to do by hand. Was it poured into a mould or something?

Why buying a fake tsuba? Make no sense if it is cheap or not?

I don't know for sure if it is a fake, and if its not I'm curious about how they would have made this with the technology from 200 years ago.

 

Edit: actually I realize casting works from the Edo period can be quite detailed, so I take that back.

 

It still makes an interesting comparison with the other pieces I have.

this will never be a homogeneously material. Poor quality and not like this what i understand under a Japanese sword guard.

Maybe its good enough for another sword from other parts of the world.
