We are pleased to list this very nice kodai Higo tsuba of the Jingo school. The tsuba is made of iron and is decorated with a large dragon on the obverse done in silver nunome. The reverse has a Buddhist Vajra also done in gold nunome. This tsuba measures 3 and 3/16 inches or 8.1 cm by 3 inches or 7.6 cm. It is in very good condition with no active rust. It comes with NBTHK Hozon papers attributing it to the kodai Higo tradition.
This tsuba would go very well with the complete set of koshirae kodogu that was listed at the same time as this tsuba.
