Description

Period Japanese Kabuto Samurai Helmet ~
The Kabuto is a type of helmet first used by ancient Japanese warriors, and in later periods, they became an important part of the traditional Japanese armour worn by the samurai class and their retainers in feudal Japan.
Note that in the Japanese language, the word kabuto is an appellative, not a type description, and can refer to any combat helmet.
This is a 18th century Japanese piece of the Heichozan pattern of a Suji bachi type kabuto, a relic from the last golden era of the samurai preserving its specific elements.
Its hachi (the dome) is composed of six overlapping elongated tate hagi-no-ita (plates).
The Tehen - hachimanza (the small opening at the top of the hachi) is fitted with a tehen kanamono (an ornamental grommet, resembling a chrysanthemum).
As seen in the pictures both Fukigaeshi, wing-like or ear-like projections to the sides of the hachi are present, as is the Mabizashi (the brim or visor on the front of the hachi).
Only the first layer of the Shikoro (the suspended neck guard composed of multiple overlapping lames) is present.
~ Dimensions ~
The helmet has a diameter of 8 inches (20 cm).
Its width front to rear is 12 inches (32 cm), with a depth left to right of 11 inches 29 cm) and a height of 7 inches (19 cm).
It weighs 1.03 Kg.
~ Condition ~
As seen in the pictures, the piece is in relic condition, with missing components and loss of paint.
