Item Overview

Description

Genuine antique Japanese iron KABUTO of SAMURAI's ō-yoroi (大鎧) armor, Edo period (1603-1868) The ō-yoroi (大鎧) is a prominent example of early Japanese armor worn by the samurai class of feudal Japan. The term ō-yoroi means "great armor."[1] Traditional Japanese armour had six main components (hei-no-rokugu, roku gu, or roku gusoku), 1) the dou or dō (chest armour), 2) kabuto (helmet), 3) mengu (facial armour), 4) kote (armoured sleeves), 5) sune-ate (shin armour), and 6) the hai-date (thigh armour).[1][2][3] The sangu was composed of the suneate (shin armour), kote (armored sleeves), haidate (thigh armour). These armour components were a combination of a cloth backing and various types of armour that was attached to the cloth backing. On an original authentic suit of Japanese armour (gusoku) the cloth backings, edgings, decorations etc. and the armour elements would all be matching to each other.[4] Width 13.2 in = 33.5 cm; Length 13.4 in = 34 cm; Height 5.9 in = 15 cm; Weight 55.02 oz. = 1560 g; CONDITION: Very good, considering the age of 250 years old, insignificant wear. There are some battle damages and there is a repair in the front part. Age: Over 250 years ago. It is the middle Japanese Edo Period. Authenticity: This kabuto is the old original, it is NOT a reproduction. Materia: All parts are made of iron. The main head is iron. SHIKORO (lower flapping part) is iron, too. Provenance: private collection in Japan.
