"A well forged iron plate with eight roundels - circular emblems of family crests (mon) made of cast brass, pierced and chiseled in kebori, and with flat brass inlay (hira-zogan) of stems. There are eight different kamon in sukashi, which are obviously visible on both sides. These sukashi sections that are inlaid into the plate are refered to as ranma-bori because they have the appearance of the ranma (transom panels with openwork carving) that are seen in Japanese temples and other important buildings above walls and doorways. It should be noted that these MON represent familys living in the Northern area of Japan.
Dates Momoyama to early Edo period." (Long)
