This item is called a “tsuba”, which is the hand guard for a Japanese sword. Often tsuba are decorated with beautiful inlay work or etched scenes and patterns. This tsuba is shaped in the “maru gata” style as a small oval with a raised design. One side depicts a Japanese figure standing next to bamboo trees. The other side hints at the ocean, with a few bamboo branches at the side. Weighs 94.6 grams. The tsuba measures about 2 ¾” long by 2 ½” wide, and accommodates a sword of about 1 1/8” wide and 8mm thick on one end. Excellent condition. Light wear commensurate with age.
