"A round iron plate tsuba with scalloped rim edge. The brass inlay of three leaf plant with vines occurs on both sides. On the ura side, left of nakago-ana, is carved 'Ten' meaning heaven, sky, the air, Imperial, etc. It seems this was added after the tsuba was made. The hitsu-ana show Shoami style influence.
Dates to the Momoyama period, ca. 1550-1600." (Haynes)

7.30cm x 7.85cm x 0.45cm.
