If this ornate Japanes tsuba could speak.. Finely worked copper or bronze dragon in waves on both sides. Heavy, and solid metal (116.5 grams). This piece is 2 7/8" across. Condition is outstanding retaining some of the original gilt. A few micro bulges where the piece touched the blade of a sword. This is certainly one of the finest examples currently available because of the incredibly rich detail of the metal work. The metal work of the samurai is legendary, and this is a fine tsuba. Huawe-sword japanese katana sword tsuba. Acquired at an antiques sale.
