19th century or earlier unsigned iron Japanese sword tsuba depicting two sennins (hermits with miraculous powers and implements) under a pine tree. Gama sennin is seated looking at his usual companion - three legged toad, and Tekkai sennin is standing leaning on his long staff. Very good piece with gilding and multimetal inlays, wonderful detailing, great patina. Height 3 3/16 inches.
