This Japanese helmet is in extremely high demand, and it is easy to see why. It is truly a showpiece that you will fall in love with.
The original of the kabuto (helmet) of the Dragon Armour is interesting inasmuch as the bowl of the helmet came from the Momoyama period. The suji bachi style of bowl, with overlapped and riveted plates was typical of the finest helmet makers (katchu-shi) of this period, borne out by the signature of the Saotome smith Ienao on the back plate. The menpo (mask) is a typical ressei men of the type made in Nara. Mounted on a solid wood display stand, this helmet will be an outstanding addition to any collection and will complement any dÃƒÃƒÃ‚Â©cor beautifully.
