Black-Laced Gomai Do Gusoku. Edo Period (18TH-19TH century)

The kabuto, a thirty-two-plate suji-bachi, the fukigaeshi with dyed and painted leather and gilt-metal crests of dragons in roundels, gilt-wood maedate (forecrest) of stylized iris leaves.
Five-plate russet-iron cuirass with a shishi deeply embossed on the front, details in gold inlay, signed Myochin Shikibu Ki Munesuke saku, other parts covered with leather with the same design of blossoms and fruits, seven-splint shino suneate (leg guards)

Nice Kabuto
