Tsuba with Openwork Scroll and Dragon


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This openwork scroll design includes a dragon that moves within the scrollwork. The left half of the tsuba is lightly incised, which may be the preparation to cut that side like the right. This style is called "Nanban," because it derived from foreign influences.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
