An oval-shaped shibuichi tsuba finely chiseled with a nocturnal scene of two peasants carrying water buckets and bundled sticks along the banks of a river. The two peasants pause from their hard work to contemplate under the silvery full moon emerging from the clouds above the mountain tops. The poetic scene is highlighted with gold, silver and shakudo. Incised signature of Naomichi on revers. This exquisite tsuba is in excellent condition. Length: 3”, width: 2.75” 19th Century, Japan
