Antique sword guard - Mokko with gold zogan tsuba

€ 165.00

Mokko lotus shaped sword guard with raised rim and double hitsu ana (holes for kogai and kozuka). 
The surface of the tsuba shows gold lining known as nunome zogan. While the exact shape is unclear, a marking around the seppa dai can clearly be seen.
Otherwise, there also exist abstract zogan variations known as gomi-zogan which can also be the case.

The ura side of the tsuba shows no traces of zogan.
