Round iron plate tsuba with the design of two samurai on horseback traveling through a pine tree (matsu) forest. The inlay of the horses includes the abumi and bits along with saddles. One samurai with silver face, the other with copper face. All branches of the matsu have copper branch stems along with katakiri bori carving. This is a very fine example of Kyo-Shoami work dating ca.1600.
