Sendai Yukinoshita Dou Gusoku ERA: Momoyama-Early Edo 1590-1620 STYLE: Yukinoshita Dou gusoku – Sendai Gusoku REGION: Sendai SCHOOL: Yukinoshita SIGNATURE: None visible This is a very nice early and complete matching armor of the Date clan.
Tetsu sabi ji nuri tatehagi okegawa go-mai dou gusoku, Edo period, completely matching. Fittings, lacquer, lacing, fabric are all en suite. I believe it to have been produced during the second half of the Edo period in the Early 1800s. However, when it was produced, a Momoyama period Haruta school 8 plate akoda nari kabuto was used. It appears to be a twelve plate kabuto, however, upon inspection of the inside you can see that it is only eight.
