Description :

Maru-gata tsuba with one kozuka hitsu-ana depicting a scenery with two animals in a bamboo, rocks and waterfall landscape, with a river sketched on the reverse.

Chiseled on high relief with inlays of silver (the animals) and gold (the bamboo leaves, the rocks on the reverse).

It is difficult to identify the animals but with a magnifying lens it is possible to recognize a monkey behind a lying animal with a face like a shi-chi, or a dog, or maybe a tiger because of the presence of the monkey.

As a matter of fact, monkey and tiger are often found associated in Japanese art, symbolizing together the third hour of the day and the third hour of the night

Weight : 77 g


Condition : good condition overall. Some signs of age wear
