    Ancient Japanese Early Edo Period C1650-1700, Iron Kabuto Helmet & 5 Piece Shikoro Neck Guard Armour. Sn 14475:2 - 14475:2

    The Edo period is the period between 1603 and 1868 in the history of Japan, when Japanese society was under the rule of the Tokugawa shogunate and the country's 300 regional daimyo. Armour in Japan has a history that goes back as far as the 4th century. Japanese armour developed enormously over the centuries since its introduction to the battlefield. It was worn to varying degrees by numerous classes and was seen on the battlefield both on mounted and foot troops. Armour was expensive to produce and held in high esteem by Japanese families. Japanese Kabuto helmets were made from iron or leather riveted together. Shikoro neck guard armour was made from several layers of curved iron or leather strips suspended from the bottom edge of the kabuto by macrame cords (odoshi) made from leather and/or braided silk. This is an original example of an early Edo period C1650-1700 Japanese Kabuto helmet with original Shikoro 5 piece neck guard armour plates. The russet iron helmet has copper fittings and slotted front mount for family or clan badge or mon. The helmet bowl without liner is approx. UK size 7 ½. The 5 Piece Shikoro Neck Guard Armour iron scales are undamaged and require binding together by cord or leather and attaching to the helmet bowl. The price for this ancient Japanese piece which would make a superb display piece when assembled includes UK delivery. Sn 14475:2
