An oval soft metal tsuba, its smooth surface with an asymmetrical image of a powerful tiger relaxing with his front paws upon the base of a tree. The stealthy feline’s body is inlaid with gilt eyes and shakudo stripes. On the reverse, the tiger’s muscular back is visible through the cut-out design. Unsigned. This tsuba is in excellent condition. 19th Century, Japan
