The face and back carved in high relief with kanji, five on the face, and four on the back. The kanji on the face translate roughly as: "I immediately feel refreshed in the shade of the ivy", and the reverse side: "It is cold above the summit of the pines." This may well be a famous poem, but I am not sure of the source.<BR><BR> Signed: 'Yamashiro Kuni Fushimi ju Kaneiye', H 02464.0. Were this tsuba not signed it would be very difficult to know that it is the work of the later Kaneiye school in Fushimi. There is a Toshinaga tsuba which very much resembles this one illustrated in the TAGANE NO HANA (Nara school book section) (see images below) and there might be a relationship of these two tsuba.<BR><BR> Several friends have agreed that this work is of the Momoyama period and that it is by one of the large group of Kaneiye artists living at that time. A great deal more study and research needs to be done and if anyone has ideas or information that might give a better idea of the connection this work has to the Kaneiye school I hope they will inform us."
