Good condition, see description
I offer up a splendid example of samurai armor or yoroi for children’s day. The armor is made of metal, leather, silk and wood parts. No plastic!
This is a true craftsman handmade item signed on the back of the helmet’s crest by its maker.
The full set includes: the kabuto with 2 maedate (the helmet with 2 dragons decorations one metalic and one wood that can be interchanged), the menpo (iron mask), the do (breastplate), sode (shoulders’ armor), kote (arms), tekko (gauntlets), haidate (legs armor), kegutsu (fur shoes) and includes a rabbit fur with colors reminding the one of a deer (usual item used with samurai’s armors when displayed). All comes with the original box.
See the many pictures I uploaded presenting this magnificent piece of collection.
The assembled armor on the top of its box is around 90cm tall. The box is 48x37x39cm. Total weight around 9kg. The item was likely created in the 50ties. It has some minor painting scratches on some parts, and the wood dragon maedate had a leg restored since broken in the past and is missing the original hook to put it on the helmet but a possible piece to replace the hook could be eventually found, other than that the yoroi is on very nice conditions.
Traditionally, on the 5th of May, during the boy’s day (kodomo no hi 子供の日), such type of items are put on display to remember the spirit of samurais and of bushido 武士道 (way of the warrior) so to bring fortune to male children of the family.
Will be sent from Belgium carefully packed with tracking parcel. (no hidden import taxes, the item is in the EU)
Total weight of parcel will likely be over 10kg if not I will refund the cost difference between the postage cost indicated and the one for item of less than 10kg.
