"A slight oval shakudo plate with precise nanako. Both hitsu-ana are present and shows signs of being mounted more than once. A gold fukurin adorns the piece.
The design is of Bamboo ("Take") and Tigers ("Tora"). Since its introduction to Japan, the Tiger in the Bamboo had been a preferred picture for paintings and for metal carving and inlays. The design was both carved and made separate then attached.
