Pretty classic Choshu  'Chinese landscape painting' tsuba.

Probably second half of the 19th Century.

No severe damage by the whole surface is covered in a network of fine rust outbreaks and there's not much life left in what remains of the original patina.

Having said that I believe this piece could be 'revived' to about 95.3 % of it's original appearance. :glee:
