A semi-sukashi, mokko-shaped iron tsuba inlaid with sentoku in Heianjo style. Aoi leaves and fine tendrils on both sides are inlaid in suemon zogan style, the large areas inlaid with slightly- raised sentoku. (This elegant Heianjo style became popular during the Muromachi Period, continuing well into the Edo Period.) This marvelous example of the genre is in very good condition, its minor wear commensurate with age and use. Diameter: 3" Edo Period, Japan
