Also called kikumaru e, kikumarugawara eۊ or kogiku e. A tile decorated with a Chrysanthemum motif that appeared in the Momoyama period. Used primarily along the base of a high, tile-stacked decorative ridge *oomune 哏. The motif called *kikkamon eԕ, was used widely until the end of the Edo period. Thereafter, it was designated the Emperor's crest and general use was forbidden. Pantiles *sangawara V, also were decorated with the chrysanthemum motif during the Edo period. A typical Edo period example of a chrysanthemum motif was found on an eave-end tile, kikkamon nokimarugawara eԕۊ, that was excavated from the Sentou Gosho 哴䏊 in Kyoto. The tile is 17.4 cm in diameter and has a flat, wide rim.
