The iron plate with two raised pine needles with gold dew drops on the face and a partial gold nunome seal(?) as well. The reverse with two pine needles and a very well hammered surface.<BR><BR>Signed with the full traditional Kaneiye signature of 'Yamashiro Kuni Fushimi ju Kaneiye'. This is the work of the best of the Tetsunin artists, see H 09683.0. It is not signed by them but the plate work, design and the power of the piece all point to their work.<BR><BR>The shakudo inlay was added shortly after, or even at the time this tsuba was made. The work is not signed but it shows the hand of the Yokoya school of artists and was done no doubt in friendship with the artist who made the iron plate."
