Antique Edo Period Samurai Helmet(Kabuto) with Certificate

Period: the middle of the Edo Period

Certificate: Tokubetsu Kicho Shiryo issued by The Association for the Research and Preservation of Japanese Helmets and Armor

Primary material : Iron

This type of Samurai helmet(Kabuto) is categorized as Akodanari Suji Kabuto. Akodanari means one kind of Japanese watermelon. The shape of this Kabuto resembles this fruit. This helmet was designed to ease the impact of attacks by having space on the top area and had better ventilation compared to other types. For these reasons, this style gained its popularity in the Muromachi period. We believe this helmet was created emerging armor makers such as Myochin(明珍), Yaotome(八乙女) schools in the Edo period. The helmet used 6 iron plates and it was inspired by an old style of Akodanari Kabuto from the Muromachi period. There is a Yotsubishi(四菱)family crest, which was  prestigious crest among Samurai.

Based on the condition and beautiful iron surface, it is a beautiful piece that deserves its certificate.
