A yellow-bronze tsuba with rounded corners carved with highly-detailed spiny lobster amid bamboo leaves and seaweed. The motif of bamboo and seaweed continues on the reverse side. Naturalistic treatment of the spiny lobster and fine incised detailing on the bamboo leaves characterize this piece. This tsuba is in very good condition with only minor surface wear commensurate with age and use. 19th Century, Japan
