A namban iron tsuba, octagonal in form and ingeniously overlaid in the rogin style. Pursuing the sacred tama, stylized dragons are superimposed upon its intricate scrollwork, the seppa dai and hitsu ana foliated with a cross-hatching design. This intriguing tsuba is in good condition with some wear to the iron visible along the edge – expected - because of its age and usage. Length: 3”, width: 2.75” 19th Century, Japan
