Detailed Description

We are pleased to present a very rare samurai armor from Iwai's famous armorer school, bearing the heraldry of the fiefdom of Ishikawa, north of present-day Osaka - Japan.
Between two periods we are the Sengoku Jidai and the Era Edo period, around 1600, where Japan was in a great political crisis, divided into many small fiefdoms constantly at war with each other. This particular armor seems to be ordered by a samurai with particular and high financial means, the materials that constitute it are of exceptional quality and the components carefully forged.

The 36 plates divided into five parallel blades form the kabuto, made of iron covered with a soft natural brown asian ostrich skin, ending with a long thick shaft of a tuft of white hair, as well as the back protection, called "Yoroi" too It is made up of 6 parallel blades and riveted in the round by gilded nails decorated with a stylized flower, and lined with the same brown ostrich Asian leather.
The facial iron mask, called "Mempo" is of the fierce "Ressei" type, with embossing around the mouth and cheeks, very impressive, with an interior in typical red lacquer.

The throat protection, called "Tara" consists of six overlapping lamellae joined together by a blue cotton string. All the components are in any case original and coeval to the armor, even the brown lacquer box has its original irons worked and cold bent. Recall that this exceptional armor has been preserved for generations by a Tokyo family, collectors and lovers of the samurai tradition and culture, the purchase is not easy at all because the collectors or the Japanese families themselves decline trade and sales abroad of their rare and precious armor, as a matter of respect, love, consideration and continuation of their history and tradition, in order to keep the interest in the figure of the samurai warrior and the various klan of the shogunate alive. We thank our consultant on the subject and expert in Japanese culture for providing us with the necessary information to explain the armor in the collection.
