An oval-shaped tsuba with a gold kaga-inlaid design of a gnarly pine tree arranged asymmetrically on its shakudo ground. In homage to the beauties of nature, the boughs continue onto the reverse, its fine stippling and incised work denoting the tree’s texture and sprawling lichen. Unsigned, this multi-metal tsuba is in very good condition with only minor surface wear due to age and use. 19th Century, Japan
