Antique Japanese Samurai Kabuto Helmet

Lot # 4 (Sale Order: 4 of 601)

There are four articulated neck guard plates that surround the back and sides, which are attached with silk cord, and there are two small side plates on either side of the main body. Top of helmet has a multi-layered decorative fitting which serves as a vent. Inside there are remnants of a buff leather sweat band with three cord loops for attaching a top liner and chinstrap(both not present). The maidate or helmet crest was probably made in the early 20th Century and is a typical motif of curved arms with boar's eye piercings and painted gold.

There are chips and losses to the lacquer on the front of the chinguard and throat plates, and the rear of the throat plates, with small losses to the red finish on the inside.
