Pair of early 19th century good size Japanese sword menuki each depicting a riding crop - the one with dark patina with abumi (stirrup), the gilded one with a long tailed bird on a wooden bucket. Superb design, excellent quality work - see the perfectly imitated bamboo texture of the crops, inlaid silver spots on the stirrup and rope texture on bucket. Silvering and gilding, in excellent condition. Length 2 inches.
