"Oval iron plate, dished to the center, and carved and inlaid with a sage, which is iron on iron inlay, standing by a waterfall in a classic Chinese style landscape. The reverse with boldly carved grass and three birds in flight in gold inlay.

This type of tsuba, with the fine gold inlay and attention to detail, is a classic example of the work of the Aizu Shoami school, ca. 1750." (Haynes)
