An elegant iron sukashi tsuba of round form with silhouette of water reeds, their tall, willowy stalks bent slightly over delineated waves. Above near the rim, three abstracted birds fly-in-formation. The iron is not rusty and overall condition is very good. Minor wear commensurate with age and use, remnants of gilt throughout. This tsuba is a fine example of Kinai School of sword fittings. Diameter: 3” Edo Period (18th Century), Japan
