"Oval brass plate tsuba with gold plated surface. The whole carved in the form of a plum tree with the branches and blooms in openwork forming the web of the plate. The surface and detail carving shows the hand of a master carver. The slightly oval shape hitsu-ana are in the style of the Umetada school, and since the subject of the tsuba is the plum (ume, of Umetada), it is only natural to see the connection to that family school. This example would seem to date from the late Edo period when gold could be used more freely." (Haynes)
