A fine Edo period (1603-1868) or earlier iron tsuba of a classic form and with mixed metal decorations in gold and silver. A wonderful butterfly with dark patinated wings and with gold highlights. The spray of flowers in gold and silver. Those fierce samurai loved their flowers and butterflies! And the metal smiths were without equal working with mixed metals.

About 2.8"" x 3.2"". Very good condition.

This one is both simple & elegant! The best of these botanical designs are said to be like the Japanese haiku poem. Wonderful design! Guaranteed authentic antique Japanese. Not recent import.
