Description At the top of this tsuba is a moth with its head down towards the central opening. A cricket is at the bottom edge. On the back, a dragonfly is at the top and a fly is at the bottom. The tsuba is so small that the secondary openings for the hair pick and utility knife create a scallop on the edge.
Provenance Henry Walters, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
