A very noble iron plate tsuba belonging to the JINGO school. The iron is radiant, appearing wet in hand. The hitsu-ana are designs of gourds, being different shape and size. Because of the highly refined simplicity of the design and high quality of the iron surface, this is a 'classic' Jingo tsuba. Seems to date to the early Edo period.
