Helmets Japanese
Japanese Edo Period Kabuto, Samurai Helmet

Item #43659 : Original era manufacture. A great looking Samurai helmet dating from the Edo period of Japanese history, 1603-1868. The helmet is quite sound, with a skull made of iron divided into 12 sections by thin lacquer lines descending to the iron visor, which is covered in matching lacquer. The neck guard is made of five separate sections of curved iron, with a decorative finish of a lapped design. The lacing is intact, and likely is an old replacement.The interior has a woven fabric lining edged in leather, with an original corded chin strap once covered in red silk. The underside of the visor displays an old red lacquer finish.      There are three decorative brass bosses on the lower rear edge of the helmet, and another boss with a ring, mounted higher up on the helmet's skull.Due to the considerable age of the helmet, some lacquer loss has occurred on the visor edge, and a few chips in the dividing bands of the helmet skull. Nothing unusual for a helmet of this age. Although we are not active collectors of these Japanese helmets, we do find them very interesting and have two in our own display. They certainly make a dramatic, visual statement.
