Rick,
Thank you for your comments. You are correct is saying that these tubes do not have direct means of elevation. Perhaps they were used with an element that ain't there now. I also wonder if...

Indeed this is a worthy thread, but....
If this "guard" was found in East Asia, it would be classified as a a "Namban tsuba" of some kind.

"Keris and Other Malay Weapons"

I have - and do not need - a copy of G. B. Gardner's 1936 volume. I'd love to swap it would something interesting. Gun parts, VOC stuff, Namban gear. Anybody interested?
