19th century Japanese sword menuki of a walking peasant with two objects - one in his back, the other in his hands, currently mounted as a pin and a pendant. Very clever design, superb detailing - see his face, silver socks, shakudo pants, and the coat inlaid with gold, silver, shakudo and copper squares. The material of the back, the clasp and swinging pendant loop appears to be silver. Height 1 15/16 inches.
