Provenance: Elliott Long POA
A well forged iron plate in almost square configuration. Four inome appear at the corners and there is a twisted rope design for the rim. Both hitsu-ana are the same, one has been filled with shakudo. The carving is simple yet robust which makes the entire piece very appealing.

The mei is original and points this to the Owari 'NOBUIYE'. Dates to the late Muromachi period.
6.80cm x 6.10cm x 0.80cm at rim.
