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.

    Where is my order? I´ve paid 2 weeks ago and I haven´t my order. Catawiki is a FRAUD.

    Response by seller
    Dear Sir I communicate with you immediately about the issue with the Belgian Post that are still today searching for the parcel.

    One week ago I even asked catawiki to suspend the payment to me in the meanwhile.

    Also another item I posted to you some time ago was correctly received. At thet time I refunded you 3 euro of extra fee you paid.

    Even more I refunded you of 28 euro of postage (since you only wanted the flag) for this second postage even before you received the parcel.

    NO FRAUD here only unluck. The Belgian Post are still searching for the parcel. As soon as I have news you will immediately know.

    Catawiki is informed that in case of parcel lost confirmed the auction would be cancelled.

    Please wait


    Please remove your feedback until the Belgian Post has completed its investigation
