Iron tsuba with gold and copper highlights with a boy with a fan standing below a figure with his arms tucked into the sleeves of his kimono while a child peers around his legs. On the other side are a few branches and an engraved mountain. It is 2 ¾ inches by 2 9/16 inches (7 x 6.5 cm)

Condition; some surface rust and wear to the highlights.

Interesting and humorous, perhaps the tsuba of a shy child now a samurai.
