A breath-taking shakudo tsuba finely etched with gold accents on a nanako ground. The subject matter depicts the celebrated Uji River and its bridge, the site of legendary clan wars. On this rare tsuba, the battles are long gone, the river serene with boats traversing its waters, castles and huts nestled among the mountainous landscape. This fine tsuba is in excellent condition. Unsigned. Length: 3”, width: 3” 19th Century, Japan
